We have some of the most respected solicitors in the country, who have years of experience and expertise and who are used to working with the best specialists in other, related, disciplines- tax, family office, trust, reputation management, corporate, immigration, property and employment lawyers, accountants, wealth management advisors and trustees.

​Our clients are usually private individuals, but also corporate entities (including partnerships and charities) and trustees. They are often based abroad, even though the issues are about Scots law.

We like getting things resolved. Litigation is rarely the best way, but if it is, we have heavyweight litigation experience ranging from local Sheriff Courts to the Supreme Court. If possible though, we encourage people to try another dispute resolution (DR) method- like mediation & arbitration. No other firm in Scotland can compete with us on the experience in DR that we can offer clients.
