It may have been the end of an era when solicitor Torquil MacLeod left the Inverness-legal firm he founded, but it was by no means the end of the company.
Torquil MacLeod & Co was relaunched last year as Howie Nicholson & Co by Iain Howie, who has been a partner in the business since shortly after it was formed in 2001.
“I’ve been practising in Inverness since 1987 and I’m well-known in the area so I felt it was appropriate when Torquil MacLeod decided to move on that I put my name on the door,” he explained.
Mr Howie is joined in the firm by his wife Lesley (nee Nicholson), who is also a solicitor, although her role is purely as a consultant partner. But despite these changes it is business as usual for the practice that specialises in property-related legal services, including domestic and commercial conveyancing, estate agency and leasing.
Howie Nicholson & Co is a member of the Highland Solicitors Property Centre (HSPC) and also deals with trust and executry administration as well as powers of attorney.
“We are effectively the same company run in very much the same style as before,” Mr Howie explained.
“I have a small team – solicitor David Simpson, who works alongside me on the legal side, and practice manageress Emma Blackall, who takes care of the accounts and administration – so primarily the client deals either with myself or David directly.”
In addition to providing a personal approach, Howie Nicholson & Co uses the latest technology to offer an efficient and consistent high standard of service. “We are currently in the process of investing in a substantial upgrade of the sophisticated case management software we use, which will help improve things further,” Mr Howie added.
“We not only want to let people know that we still exist, but that we are developing and carrying the practice forward.”As you visit ‘Howie Nicholson & Co’, you may find interest in following listings . . .
