28 Nov Honeyman backs growth at Douglas Home & Co
Douglas Home & Co are delighted to have recently appointed one of Edinburgh’s best-known former lawyers, as we expand our presence in the city. Greig Honeyman has come on board to advise the directors at Douglas Home & Co, while tapping into his extensive network of family businesses, trusts, lawyers and corporate decision-makers.
Greig Honeyman joins the Douglas Home & Co team on a consultancy basis after stepping down from Shepherd and Wedderburn, where he’d spent six years as a partner and the last 18 months as a consultant. Currently, he is a non-legal advisor to some of Scotland’s wealthiest families.
Formerly the Managing Partner of Fyfe Ireland until 2012, Greig will help Douglas Home & Co with the implementation of our growth plan after the opening of our first Edinburgh office in 2019.
He will act as a non-legal conduit for new business, assisting with our long-term strategy and will apply his knowledge and experience to promote Douglas Home & Co’s business and corporate finance department.
Greig said: “To be supporting the board and the business ambitions of one of the most exciting brands in Scottish accounting is a great opportunity for me. Douglas Home & Co has incredible growth potential which I’m hoping to help promote in every way I can. By working closely with the team members at Douglas Home & Co, I’m hoping to add significant value to the business through my own business and professional connections amassed during many years of working on private client and commercial matters around Scotland.
“Accountants, lawyers and all other businesses are incredibly busy at the moment. By formalising relationships with key connections, we can bring attention to real solutions that make life easier for the clients and prospective clients of this top firm. It is a developing aim of all at Douglas Home & Co that they wish to be able to react faster to clients’ problems than the client can themselves. I hope to play a prominent part in the fulfilment of such aims. As a special non-legal advisor to many families, businesses and trusts, including family and charitable trusts, I believe I am well placed to advise Douglas Home & Co on matters which will keep it well ahead of its competitors in the future”.
Greig studied at the University of Edinburgh and has since plied his trade for a range of top legal firms such as Honeyman & Mackie and Tods Murray LLP, before giving up his legal practising certificate only two months ago to focus on non-legal consultancy work.
Darren Thomson, Chief Executive of Douglas Home & Co added: “Greig is one of Edinburgh’s best-connected business people – and brings with him a wealth of knowledge that will be a boost to our continued development. We’re confident that Greig’s vast network from his impressive professional services career in Edinburgh will prove priceless. Alongside that, his advisory skills are second to none, adding a great deal of fresh-thinking to an already highly-performing team.”
The Douglas Home & Co team are delighted to have Greig Honeyman on board to aid the growth of the company in Edinburgh. For more information on our services and expertise, visit: https://www.douglashomeandco.co.uk/
