Sometimes businesses face financial pressure and when that happens excellent advice is needed.

Fiona is a partner in Shepherd and Wedderburn’s Corporate Restructuring and Insolvency Team. She provides businesses, banks, investors and other stakeholders with top quality expert guidance in challenging situations.

Fiona went to Bearsden Academy.  For five of the six years that Fiona was there she had ambitions of becoming a vet before a cow standing on her foot caused her to seriously question her fondness of animals!

Fiona’s snap decision to change her career aspirations and study law at University of Strathclyde proved to be a good one. She was made partner in a major international law firm at the age of 31 and has been described by clients as “one of the standout lawyers in Scotland”.

The variety and speed of the work Fiona is involved in is what she most enjoys. Fiona feels that the common sense and analytical ability that she brings to complicated situations were nurtured during her time at school.
