Our People

Understanding what sets us apart

Our people are our most important asset - their accessibility, knowledge, experience, skills and high-quality work is acknowledged across the legal profession.

What sets us apart is our understanding - of both our subject and the particular needs of our client.

We focus only on the Scottish public sector, providing an unrivalled commitment to meet its needs.

We are committed to building close working relationships with our clients. In doing so, we communicate effectively and provide advice on time and on target.

Our position within the NHS enables us to influence health policy and to provide a unique data collection and reporting service on NHS activity.

To maximise continuity and ease of access, our 50 specialist solicitors are organised in a team structure, with three litigation, one employment, one commercial contracts and three commercial property teams, with specialist groups covering public health, mental health and practitioner services law.

Regular feedback from our clients on the positive attitude and expertise of our staff underlines our effectiveness.
