Chambers UK recognises Brodies for expertise in high value personal and family client matters

Posted: 30th July 2021

UK and leading Scottish law firm Brodies LLP has been recognised for its expertise in advising clients on high value personal and family matters, in the annual Chambers UK High Net Worth Guide.

The firm maintains its band 1 rankings for private wealth law services in Aberdeen, Glasgow and Edinburgh, and achieves a band 4 UK ranking for family/matrimonial law – one of only two law firms in Scotland to be included in the list.

The Chambers UK High Net Worth Guide – which bases its rankings on detailed research into firms and lawyers and feedback from clients and legal peers – also ranks Brodies band 1 for its expertise in private wealth law as a national leader outside London, and recognises seven of its personal and family lawyers in the individual rankings.   

Mark Stewart, partner and head of Personal and Family at Brodies, said: “These rankings highlight the commitment that our colleagues have to our clients and working with them to identify the best solutions to what can often be sensitive, complex and unique circumstances.”

“Over the past 12 months, we’ve seen our personal and family law practice grow and strengthen its skills, with private client lawyers Hayley Robertson and Nick Marshall promoted to partner, and the number of accredited specialists within our family practice increase to 11 family law specialists, eight accredited mediators, two trust accredited lawyers and two child law specialists.”

Partner Shaun George, who leads the family practice, added: “Events of the past 12 months have created new and sometimes unforeseen challenges for our clients in their personal lives. Our lawyers have worked closely with our clients to help them address these issues and we thank them for trusting us to provide specialist and cost-effective advice, to suit their individual circumstances.”
