Full service firm Ledingham Chalmers provides trusted, proactive legal advice from its offices in Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Inverness, and Stirling to individuals and organisations including multinational and national companies, as well as high potential SMEs and the public sector.

 Its business clients operate across industries that drive the national economy including utilities, oil and gas, energy, renewables, commercial property, construction, agriculture, leisure and tourism, and education.

Ledingham Chalmers was formed in 1991 through the merger of C&PH Chalmers and Edmonds & Ledingham, firms with a heritage going back to Victorian times. Since then, its development has tracked Aberdeen’s emergence as the capital of the European oil and gas exploration and production sector and as a centre of excellence for engineering and professional services: a success story that ultimately led to growth into Inverness a quarter of a century ago, and more recently into Stirling.

Underpinning this success, every step of the way, is the emphasis on long-term client relationships.

In a legal marketplace where the only certainty is the increasing level and speed of change, Ledingham Chalmers has adapted and continues to concentrate on sustainable growth — most recently making strategic partner appointments in Inverness to focus on expanding the reach of its rural and private client teams. An approach that is paying off at a time when the Scottish legal market is consolidating.

INTERNATIONAL The firm is the Scottish member of Lawyers Associated Worldwide, a network of thousands of lawyers from 100 firms covering 188 jurisdictions working together to service clients’ needs.
