Ayrshire solicitors announce new commercial law division

And Laura Graham returns home to join the firm

Frazer Coogans Solicitors of Ayr announce the setting up of their new Commercial and Agricultural Division to be known as Frazer Coogans Commercial.

Senior director Norman Geddes said: "Frazer Coogans has always been very active in commercial and agricultural property, particularly in the fields of purchase, leasing and sale of investment property, agricultural land and property, purchase and sale of pubs, hotels and other commercial premises and commercial security work. With up to date technology, the firm also has the ability and capacity to deal with a wide range of commercial matters for the major banks and for developers and investors.

"Because of the increasing volume of this type of work that we are experiencing, it seemed logical to set up a separate specialist division to handle it, much on the lines of our which deals with claims for damages for personal injury."

To enhance their Commercial Property team Frazer Coogans have also appointed Laura Graham to join the firm as an Assistant Solicitor in the new Commercial and Agricultural Division. Laura (27) comes from a farming family in Muirkirk, Ayrshire. She read Law at Glasgow University before joining the firm of Biggart Baillie as a legal trainee. She then moved to Turcan Connell in Edinburgh, specialising in commercial and agricultural law.

Laura is now looking forward to moving back to Ayrshire, and planning for her forthcoming wedding in July.

Norman Geddes said: "We are delighted that Laura has joined our Commercial Property team. Her experience in commercial and agricultural property work as well as her personal knowledge of farming will be of enormous benefit to our clients throughout Scotland."
