Aberdein Considine hires banking veteran George McNaughton
Law firm Aberdein Considine has made a number of senior appointments to its lender services practice group (LSPG) including the hire of a banking and compliance specialist.
George McNaughton has joined the firm as the head of compliance for the firm’s LSPG following a 30 year career in banking and finance.
Much of his career has been spent within retail banking, specialising in compliance, and working across lending and recoveries for a range of financial institutions, most recently Starling Bank.
The firm has also promoted Tahir Bashir to UK operations director for LSPG. He joined Aberdein Considine in 2020 as operations manager.
In a further boost to the LSPG, Aberdein Considine has appointed Gary McAdam as client relations manager. Mr McAdam joins from Ascent Performance Group where he was an associate and Scottish operations manager. He is a qualified Scottish civil litigation paralegal and has specialised in a range of litigation, compliance and recoveries roles.
Finally, the firm has appointed Dalene Lyle as an associate in the LSPG. Ms Lyle specialises in banking and property litigation and has over 10 years’ experience in the lender services field.
Myra Scott, partner and head of the lender services practice group at Aberdein Considine, said: “It’s always pleasing to be able to attract the best talent to the firm and the expertise and knowledge that George, Gary and Dalene bring will be vital as we continue to work closely with our financial services clients across the UK.
“Tahir has also proved to be an incredible and highly valued addition to the team since joining last year and his promotion is well deserved.”
