Aberdein Considine strengthens Dispute Resolution team 

Posted: 1st October 2021

Aberdein Considine has boosted its Dispute Resolution team with the appointment of a banking and commercial litigation specialist in Aberdeen.

Elaine Elder, who is currently an Associate with Aberdein Considine and is based in the Granite City, is joining the firm’s nationwide Dispute Resolution team following substantial growth in business volumes.

Since qualifying in 2013, Elaine has worked across a range of contentious matters including professional negligence, commercial debt recovery, insolvency, and landlord and tenant disputes.

She developed her knowledge on commercial contracts and corporate law when working in-house as Legal Counsel for Ethos Energy, a subsidiary of Siemens and Wood Group, and latterly she has focused primarily on complex recoveries in relation to business and commercial debt.

Karolina Naglik has joined the Dispute Resolution team as a trainee in Aberdeen. Prior to commencing her traineeship Karolina completed a summer placement with the firm in 2018 and also worked in the Conveyancing department of the firm’s Stonehaven branch whilst studying. She graduated with a First Class LLB Law (Hons) degree in 2020, completing her Diploma in Professional Legal Practice in 2021.

Following a number of acquisitions over the last few years, the firm has been focusing on expanding and strengthening its legal teams and specialisms throughout the country.

Euan McSherry, Head of Dispute Resolution at Aberdein Considine said:

“Elaine is a strong and effective litigator. She has developed her experience and skills both inside the firm and externally, bringing a commercial edge to every situation, and we’re delighted to have her moving across to the Dispute Resolution team.

Karolina has worked extremely hard and demonstrated great potential over the last few years and she will be an excellent addition to the team during her traineeship.”
