About Us

We are a top tier commercial law firm serving an international client base from Scotland. From our offices in Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow, you will have the opportunity to work with clients not just in Scotland and the rest of the UK – but across the world. At the last count we were advising clients in more than 60 jurisdictions. And we don’t like to stand still, in the last three years alone we have grown exponentially, hitting top place in the deals tables with over £16.9 bn

But it’s our culture and personality that sets us apart. We do things the way we believe they should be done. We aren’t magnolia. Truly great things don’t conform to a norm. We dare to be different.

Excellence is a consistent driver. But we don’t look at excellence in the abstract. We understand the difference between safe advice and best advice. And there is a real sense of community here. It’s a nurturing environment. We work together in a collegiate and collaborative way.
