Kay has over 25 years experience in the legal profession. After completing her traineeship with Hughes Dowdall, she continued there as an associate for many years, before joining Stewarts and Murdochs in 2002, and thereafter with the then newly formed Raeside Chisholm in 2012.

Kay’s main area of expertise is all aspects of conveyancing, whether this involves buying or selling a house, all types of small businesses and franchises, or larger commercial ventures.

Away from the office, Kay likes spending time with family and socialising with friends – wine, food, theatre –while trying to balance this with a little exercise!

I dismissed them and appointed Raeside Chisholm to handle the legal side of a property sale and get a Certificate of Confirmation (Probate). Their interaction (almost all by email, some by phone) with me was prompt, in fact almost daily. They massively exceeded my expectations. Their fee was more than reasonable. Basically, they were great!”  Anonymous, August 2020

“I have recommended you, obviously, as you have been the only part of this process that has not been stressful, you have made this seemingly terrifying process a lot easier to navigate.”  RSD, August 2020
