Brodies’ family law team has once again achieved top tier rankings across Scotland in both the Legal 500 UK and Chambers and Partners UK independent legal directories.

We offer specialist advice in all aspects of family law and can assist where there is a breakdown in a marriage, cohabitation or civil partnership. Our team provides advice in relation to the financial issues which arise including disputes about properties, businesses, pensions, share options and inherited assets. We are well placed to deal with child law issues including residence and contact disputes, relocations overseas and within the UK, and adoption. For those in a developing relationship, we can assist in the preparation of pre-nuptial and cohabitation agreements.

Our partner-led teams based in Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow are committed to going above and beyond what is normally expected of legal advisers. We strive to understand clients’ needs, providing creative solutions and building long lasting relationships. According to one client interviewed by Chambers, ‘their strengths are offering balanced opinions and advice, as well as always being available. They take both my thoughts and opinions into account, providing a pleasant and attentive approach’.

As part of Scotland’s largest law firm we work seamlessly with colleagues in other disciplines to provide the best possible advice in every area of the law. Our team is headed by Shaun George, who is accredited by the Law Society of Scotland as a Specialist in Family Law and is also a Family Law Mediator, Collaborative lawyer and a Family Law Arbitrator. He is ranked as one of three “leading individuals” in Scotland by Legal 500. Shaun works alongside Donna McKay, Associate who is also accredited as a Family Law Specialist. Donna and fellow Collaborative lawyer, Lydia McLachlan, Associate are supported by Susie Mountain and Rachael Latcham, Senior Solicitors together with three experienced Executive Assistants in the city’s Union Grove office.
