The Family Law Team, based in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Helensburgh, is experienced in both the Sheriff Courts and the Court of Session. We have litigated in some of the highest profile, complex cases in Scotland and have access to the best advocates.

In addition to being experts in family law, we have extensive experience in acting in the full range of issues affecting Modern Families including contact/residence cases, as well as assisting families with the legal aspects arising in building their families, whether using different forms of fertility or surrogacy, We are also well versed in grandparents' rights and child support issues.

Increasingly, much of our work is preventative. We are regularly instructed in many Pre and Post Nuptial l /Pre and Post Civil Partnership Agreements and Cohabitation Agreements in order to ensure that personal wealth including property and interests in family businesses are protected. See the Service Links on the right to find out about our areas of expertise.

Chambers UK notes that the family team "are one of the leading firms in Edinburgh for collaborative work".

Clients comment that the family law team “would turn over every stone to bring a successful conclusion…”  and that "they were polite and understanding.  The complex situation was dealt with very quickly" (Chambers UK).  In addition the team always "ensures that the client's perspective is put across, specifically for joint instructions".
