The Family Law Team, based in Edinburgh and Glasgow, 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 an additional specialism in child law and have had extensive experience in acting for children, adoption, surrogacy, contact, residence, grandparents rights and child support issues.
Increasingly, much of our work is preventative. We are regularly instructed in many Pre Nuptial /Pre 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.
