We are Scotland's largest family law team and deal with a comprehensive range of family law matters. We advise clients in complex and challenging circumstances, and adopt a constructive, strategic and solution orientated approach to our cases. 

We have nine family law specialists, eight accredited mediators, two trust accredited lawyers and two child law specialists.

Our focus remains on advising separating couples and providing creative solutions in high value, complex divorce and civil partnership dissolution cases, often with cross border and international dimensions. 

We are sought out by high profile individuals for whom privacy and reputation management are paramount concerns. We regard court as the forum of the last resort, offering alternative methods to resolve disputes when suitable for the client, but we are tenacious and committed when we do litigate.

We have a thriving child law practice specialising in contentious and difficult child residence and contact disputes, adoption, international and cross -border relocation, declarators of parentage and non parentage, cases involving assisted reproduction and international child abduction. 

As part of Scotland’s largest full service law firm, we have the broadest range of in-house support from legal experts covering every area of law upon which our clients can rely.
