Miriam is a Solicitor within BTO’s Regulatory and Criminal Defence Team.

Miriam began her career at BTO in February 2019 as a Paralegal within the Residential Property department. During that time, she worked closely with a senior member of the team to complete a variety of conveyancing transactions. Shortly after joining, Miriam commenced a traineeship with the firm where she gained further experience in the Residential Property team and in the Wills, Estates and Succession Planning department. During her traineeship, Miriam independently managed a case load in which she advised clients on sales, purchases and transfers of property. She was also involved in the administration of Executries and the drafting of Wills. 

Upon qualification, and eager for a different challenge, Miriam joined the Regulatory and Criminal Defence Team in September 2021. Since joining the team, Miriam has assisted the partners by helping them prepare for a range of cases where breaches of Health and Safety law have been alleged. Currently, she is also working on a high-profile Financial Crime matter. Moreover, Miriam has had the opportunity to attend a Fatal Accident Inquiry conducted in the Court of Session and Trials in the Sheriff Court.
