Law firm Aberdein Considine has announced a key promotion within two of its North-east offices.
Gary Ross has been promoted to Partner in charge at the Ellon and Peterhead branches. Gary – who joined Aberdein Considine 13 years ago – will now lead the offices’ services.
The promotion is particularly impressive for the former Grampian Police officer who suffered a serious leg break in 1997.
After several operations, Gary was deemed unfit for operational duties and left the Police, then joined Aberdein Considine as a precognition officer. While working full-time at the firm, he completed a law degree at Aberdeen University, before qualifying as a lawyer.
He has been a key member of the firm’s north east property offering for some time, having spent eight years working in Aberdeen before taking charge of the Ellon and Peterhead offices in 2008.
Gary said: “I am delighted to have been promoted to Partner in charge of our Ellon and Peterhead branches. It’s particularly pleasing as I have stayed in the area for almost 40 years and have many family and friends who reside there.
“I am very grateful to the firm for recognising and rewarding my hard work to date and look forward to increasing my responsibilities.”
Harvey Aberdein, Managing Partner of Aberdein Considine, added. “Gary’s knowledge and experience in the legal and property market is second to none and I know that Gary will play a key role in the future success of the firm.”
