Pagan Osborne solicitor recognised amongst top 6 tax lawyers in Scotland

A solicitor at Edinburgh and Fife based, legal, financial and property company, Pagan Osborne, has been recognised as a specialist in Private Client Tax Law by the Law Society of Scotland.

Fiona McDonald, a partner at the firm, is one of just six lawyers in Scotland to have achieved this level of accreditation, which recognises exceptional quality and technical expertise.

Fiona joined Pagan Osborne in 2006 and specialises in all aspects of Estate Planning including Asset Protection, Succession, Wills, Trusts, Powers of Attorney, Tax Planning and Charities.

Fiona is the co-author of the highly acclaimed legal textbooks “Inheritance Tax in Scotland” and “The Elder Client”, and tutors Revenue Law at the University of Edinburgh.  She has previously been awarded Up and Coming Lawyer of The Year at the Law Awards of Scotland as well being shortlisted for Rising Star of the Year at the Scott + Co Scottish Legal Awards.

Last year, she was the only Scottish Practitioner to be named in the national ‘35 under 35 Private Client Practitioners’ – the definitive list of the UK’s and the Channel Island’s top rising stars in the field.

Commenting on receiving this latest accreditation, she said: “I am delighted to have my work recognised in this way which I hope will serve as an endorsement of the service provided by Pagan Osborne.

“Tax legislation can be incredibly complex and constantly changes. My job is to ensure my clients are both kept up to date and that their tax planning and their Wills remain totally relevant to their lives and reflect their wishes. I am passionate about providing top quality advice and very gratified to be awarded this accreditation.”

Commenting on Fiona’s success, CEO at Pagan Osborne, Alistair Morris, said: “This is a great accomplishment for Fiona and I extend my congratulations on her latest success.

“I am pleased Fiona’s skills and expertise has been recognised at such a high level. She is a real asset to the company’s Private Client team, a fantastic role model to other young solicitors and offers an outstanding service to her clients.”
The Law Society’s accreditation scheme was established in 1990 and offers recognition of solicitors who develop specialist knowledge during their careers.
