Practice Areas

Rachael was the only 'Hall of Fame' family lawyer in Scotland for the second year running in the Legal 500 (2022 Edition) and the only Scottish lawyer in the Spears 500 Family Lawyers Guide (2022). Chambers and Partners and The Legal 500 both describe Rachael as, 'the doyenne of Scots family law'. President-Elect of the International Academy of Family Lawyers (IAFL), Rachael is accredited as a Specialist in Family Law and as a Family Mediator.

The current edition of Chambers notes, "Rachael is a pre-eminent family lawyer with a unique combination of legal brilliance and client care skills.". The Legal 500 report that "Rachael Kelsey is a superstar" and that, "She is so engaging, very pragmatic and no-nonsense, yet also sensitive and responsive as her clients and the circumstances require.’"

Rachael is known as someone who is adept at using her considerable knowledge of the law to deliver novel, yet practical, solutions for clients. She is particularly experienced in acting for individuals for whom there are jurisdictional complexities and/or privacy concerns and is used to managing the issues that flow from people's private lives being in the public eye.
