Mackinnons retain rankings in 2024 Chambers Law Firm Guide

Mackinnons Solicitors LLP are delighted to be recognised once again in the 2024 UK Chambers Law Firm Guide for their expertise in Shipping and in Personal Injury.

Shipping partner Graham Jones continues to be ranked as a Band 1 Shipping Solicitor - a testament to his expertise and standing in the Industry alongside partner, Martin Sinclair, who has also been recognised for his work in Shipping and Marine Litigation.

Mackinnons’ strength in Shipping and Marine Law includes deep and longstanding links with the Fishing Industry, unrivalled amongst law firms in the UK with the team continuing to attract clients  from across the UK, Europe and beyond.

Rachael Bain, Senior Solicitor in the Litigation Team, has also been acknowledged in this year’s guide as an ‘Up and Coming’ Solicitor in Personal Injury (defendant).  Together with Martin Sinclair, she and the team act for a number of insurance clients with a particular focus on offshore accidents and investigations.

In their feedback, clients continually commented on Mackinnons expertise, communication skills and client relationships: “Mackinnons has a very knowledgeable and approachable team that is very aware of the intricacies of our business.”

“In acknowledging these rankings, it must be recognised that this is a combined effort from both our qualified and support staff here in the firm working alongside those exclusively mentioned by Chambers. We, as a firm, are proud to serve each of our clients to the highest standards that we can achieve and value the relationships which have been built over many years of working together” commented Martin Sinclair.

Residential Property Quarterly Reflections and Insights

The latest quarterly report from the ASPC gives a reassuring picture of local market activity, with the house price index remaining, mostly, in the positive. The change in quarterly price is +1.5%, while the annual change is -0.5%. Taken over five years, the index is marginally positive at +0.4%. While the figures are reassuring, it may well be that our local market is yet to feel the strain of the general economic background and only time will tell whether this will be reflected in the remainder of 2023. Buyers’ wariness over the short term may well affect property sales as they effectively “sit tight” to see what happens with interest rates. This may result in a sluggish Autumn/Winter market as moving plans are put on hold, but for the moment, there is still healthy demand for properties in desirable locations and in good condition.
