Morton Fraser has appointed Martin Minton as a senior solicitor on its agricultural and rural team.
He began in the role on 10 May, as the first step in the law firm’s plans to invest in and grow the team over the next 12 months.
Minton joins from Inksters, where he started his career almost 10 years ago as a student researcher and subsequently a trainee solicitor.
He grew up on a croft in Wester Ross, and now specialises in crofting law, providing legal advice and support with purchasing, selling and registering crofts, as well as with access issues, boundary disputes and crofting succession.
Michael Ramsay, partner and divisional head of real estate at Morton Fraser, said: “We are delighted to welcome Martin to our Agricultural and Rural team, which provides specialist advice in all sectors of the agricultural and rural environment to both private and public sector clients.”
Minton added: “The firm has a strong reputation for being a great place to work, so I’m looking forward to focusing even more on providing crofting legal advice to a variety of clients.”
The agricultural and rural team provides advice to both private and public sector clients, including the Scottish Wildlife Trust and Scottish Government.
Minton is based in Morton Fraser’s Glasgow office.
