Q&A with a local business

Who are you? Dorothy Kellas, Solicitor and Partner at Lindsays.

Where are you based? 33 Westgate, North Berwick EH39 4AG T: 01620 893 481

How long have you been in business? I joined Lindsays in January 2012 but have been a law firm partner since 1990, specialising in later life issues, cohabitation and property.

What do you like best about East Lothian? It’s my home! I love being close to lovely walks, woods and the sea but still able to benefit from all that Edinburgh offers.

What would you change about East Lothian? Move the Dominion Cinema to North Berwick!

If you were chancellor for the day, what one thing would you do to support businesses? What would help Lindsays property clients, and therefore those in the business would be a sensible review of Stamp Duty Land Tax.

What’s your favourite business in East Lothian? I get my coffee every morning from” Cake” in the High Street so will give them a shout under this heading!

What are your (business) plans for the future? I want to grow the business by helping more local people deal with the many and various legal issues they (and their families) may have. I’ve introduced a free, drop in legal and property clinic on Thursday mornings to make it easier for people to drop in and we are also open on a Saturday morning.
