He previously worked as a solicitor for the Highland Council, dealing with property and planning matters throughout the Highlands.

Mr Campbell also joined WJM at the start of 2018. He has strong commercial experience, and started life as a corporate insolvency specialist in a large Edinburgh firm, and then had a change of career to become a private client solicitor in Inverness. He advises business families on succession objectives and estate & IHT planning, as well as providing general private client advice.

Mr Bauchop joined WJM in 2013. Specialising in commercial property and commercial securities, he works for some of the firm’s larger clients on sales and purchases of property, leasing transactions, and securities work. He also provides commercial property support to the firm’s corporate team in their transactions, and has over 30 years of experience on which other teams in the firm regularly draw.
