Gillian McKechnie


Gillian joined Shulmans two years ago to commence her training contract and qualified as a solicitor in September 2019.

Gillian has gained experience at Shulmans in the Commercial Property department where her experience involved working on the property aspects of corporate and corporate finance transactions. During six months in our Commercial Dispute Resolution team, Gillian provided litigation support across corporate areas including: contractual and shareholder disputes and insolvency procedures.

Having now qualified, Gillian is now permanently based in our Corporate Finance team. Gillian has dealt with a wide range of corporate work including:

  • acquisitions and disposals;
  • financing and refinancing;
  • corporate governance matters;
  • shareholders agreements and articles of association; and
  • tending to post completion matters.

Gillian was seconded to one of our Interlegal firms, Solomon Blum Heymann LLP, based on Wall Street in New York City. During her secondment, Gillian lived in New York and she learned how transactions are approached commercially and strategically from a US perspective. It also gave Gillian the opportunity to explore the legal market in the US by attending networking events and professional seminars on diverse topics such as the future of FinTech, advances in unstructured data and adoption of AI, as well as the pace of regulatory change in the EU vs US.

Gillian is very keen to strengthen her experience in Corporate and to further develop her knowledge from an international perspective.
