Aberdein Considine strengthens family law team with new appointment

Posted: 18th August 2021

Aberdein Considine has moved to boost its family law team with the appointment of a new Senior Solicitor and Notary Public in Edinburgh.


Emma Roman joins the firm as one of a number of recent appointments, as the firm, which has 19 offices across Scotland, continues its focus on the growth and expansion of its legal teams throughout the country.


Having gained an LLB from the University of Aberdeen in 2015, Emma achieved her Diploma in Professional Legal Practice at the University of Edinburgh Law School in 2016.


She completed her traineeship in 2018 having developed her knowledge across range of disciplines, with a particular focus on civil litigation.  Since qualifying, Emma has specialised in all aspects of family law.


While Emma has built her expertise across a broad spectrum of family law matters, including pre and post nuptial agreements, cohabitation, separation, divorce, guardianship and intervention orders, she has developed a particular interest and expertise in child law.  Emma has considerable experience advising clients in non-contentious cases, as well as appearing in court where necessary.


Emma will be based in Aberdein Considine’s flagship Edinburgh office in Multrees Walk, but will also be working with clients out of the firm’s Perth office.


Aberdein Considine offers property, legal and financial services to private and commercial clients across Scotland and the north of England.


Leonie Burke, a Partner in the Family Law team in Edinburgh said:


I’m incredibly pleased Emma has joined us.  She is a talented and motivated lawyer with great experience behind her.  The addition of Emma to the team will be invaluable in enabling us to meet ever growing client demand for family law services out of Edinburgh, Perth and the surrounding areas.  Ensuring our clients get the best possible service from us is always our top priority and investment into new talent with appointments such as Emma’s is crucial to maintaining that. ”


Ruth Aberdein, Partner and Head of Family Law at Aberdein Considine said:


“Emma is an excellent family lawyer and we’re delighted she has joined the team.   The knowledge and experience she brings with her will complement and add further strength to our team of experienced and well recognised family lawyers.


Since expanding into the central belt in recent years, Family law is an area that continues to grow for us there.  It’s hugely important that individuals and families know they can rely on our legal support and expertise whenever they need it and recruitment of the right lawyers is a key part of that.”


Emma Roman added:


“Aberdein Considine has a great reputation and I’m excited to be joining such a well-respected family law team.”


Ranked for their Family Law work in the Legal 500 guide, the firm is recognised across eight practice areas and for the sixth year running has been awarded coveted “Top Tier” status in the field of Debt Recovery.   The firm is also ranked for Corporate and Commercial Law, Commercial Real Estate, Commercial Litigation, Insolvency and Private Client work
