Cecilia Miller, Commercial Lawyer at Walker Laird

commercial

Today, our most recent recruit Cecilia Miller, gives us an insight into her experience in law and what she aims to achieve on joining Walker Laird.

I qualified as a lawyer over 20 years ago, and, since then, have spent my time specialising in commercial property, doing deals and giving advice to buyers, sellers, landlords, tenants, lenders and borrowers.

When Walker Laird offered me the opportunity to head up their commercial team, I was delighted to join this well established and trusted firm and to lead the already respected commercial department forward.

Commercial property comes in all shapes and sizes but I would like to think that there is very little during my practice that I haven’t come across whether in terms of legal challenges or types of property.  I have had transactions involving fast food drive-thrus, sea-life centres, marinas and tram tracks as well as the usual shops, offices, restaurants and development land. Its variety that makes life interesting!

At the heart of it all is good, pragmatic, commercial advice and the aim to get the best deal for my clients.

I enjoy working alongside my clients, getting to know them and their business and find it rewarding when a transaction settles and everyone is happy with the outcome

I have worked for corporate law firms in Glasgow city centre and I am excited to bring that expertise and experience to Renfrewshire.  With all the mergers and take overs in the large firms it’s becoming increasingly difficult to provide a personal, quality service at a cost-effective rate – that is what Walker Laird aim to do and I am delighted they’ve given me the chance to lead this department.

The team at Walker Laird are friendly and approachable and are very much client focused.  They’ve made me feel welcome as I get to know the Paisley and Renfrew area and market and I’m looking forward to meeting and working with some of you who are reading this.

Please contact me to discuss any needs you have in relation to any commercial property you have, or wish to have, an interest in.  I am always pleased to chat through your requirements and how I can help.

To get in touch, call me on 0141 887 5271 or email me on cecilia.miller@walkerlaird.co.uk.
