Two more Consultant Solicitors join Inksters

Inksters have strengthened their team with the addition of two more consultant solicitors.

Gerald Segal, who previously worked for Inksters from 2013 to 2020, returns as a consultant solicitor. Gerald is experienced in dealing with all aspects of property law, specialising in residential conveyancing. He has a particular focus on assisting investors from across the globe to expand their Scottish property portfolios.

Jacqueline Harkins also joins as a consultant solicitor, but in Inksters’ Private Client team, working on wills, powers of attorney and executries. Jacqueline also has a specialist interest in applications for guardianship and adults with incapacity matters.

Both Gerald and Jacqueline serve clients throughout Scotland from Inksters HQ in Glasgow.


Jacqueline Harkins said, “I am excited by the opportunity to specialise further into Private Client work. I feel that my years of experience working with and assisting clients stands me in good stead to develop within this Private Client team. Inksters have an enthusiasm with their forward thinking approach that will energise me to assist clients for years to come.”

Delighted to be back

Gerald Segal said, “I am delighted to be re-joining Inksters after a 3 year hiatus. The plug and play model offers a structure which allows me to focus more specifically on the work I enjoy most, and provide my clients with a more personalised and comprehensive service.”

Six Months of Growth

These latest additions to Inksters’ team comes after a six month growth spurt that saw Inksters opening up two new offices and add three new consultant solicitors, three new support staff and a Chief Operating Officer.

Bigger and Better with Two more Consultant Solicitors

Brian Inkster, CEO of Inksters, said, “It is great to see Gerald Segal return to Inksters and to have Jacqueline Harkins join us. These additions to our team make Inksters bigger and better. We now have a team of 37, serving clients from 12 offices throughout Scotland. Our network will only grow further as we continue to realise our ambitious expansion plans.”

Plug & Play Law

Inksters have developed a ‘plug and play law’ model where senior lawyers can work as a collective, with enhanced technology and back-office support. Where a hub-and-spoke model exists with a back office ‘hub’ (in Glasgow) and ‘spokes’ elsewhere (currently in Aberdeen, Dunkeld, Edinburgh, Eigg, Forfar, Inverness, Lerwick, Portree, Renfrew, Thurso and Wick).

Award Winning

Inksters won both the Scottish and the UK Self-employed / Sole Trader of the Year Award from the Federation of Small Businesses in 2022 for their model that allows sole traders to flourish under their umbrella.
