Practice Areas

We focus on three principal areas of practice-commercial or contractual disputes, family law and contentious employment disputes. We can advise on other court related matters including general debt recovery, insolvency and miscellaneous other matters.
If we can't help you on any court related matter then we will know someone who can. 
Family Law

 

We provide representation in family matters, including separation, divorce, financial provision and contact/residence disputes. We offer legal aid in contact and residence disputes and on matters before the Children's Hearing. We do not offer legal aid where there are assets for division, though we will offer tailored structured fee arrangements where individuals are realising or claiming assets as a result of separation or divorce.

 

 

Commercial Disputes

 

We advise on a whole range of commercial disputes including breach of contract, shareholder and partnership disputes and infringement of intellectual property. We can advise on proceedings in the Sheriff Court, Court of Session and can locally manage cases subject to English courts' jurisdiction. We can act in arbitration, mediation or court matters. 

 

 

Employment

 

We advise on contentious employment issues on behalf of both Employer and Employee, at court or tribunal. We can advise on dismissal, suspension, discrimination, restrictive covenants and breach of employment contracts. We can offer representation at court and tribunal on a range of matters on a fixed fee basis.

 

Debt Recovery

​We advise on (Pursuer) debt recovery for any sums due including small claims, summary cause and ordinary actions. We claim contractual or statutory interest and statutory penalties where debt has been defaulted upon. Where the action is undefended and expenses awarded and recovered only the (reclaimable) Vat element of our fee will be payable with the rest being recovered from the debtor.

 

Insolvency

We advise on company insolvency, director's duties and responsibilities, voluntary and compulsory liquidation and more.
