Leading family law team joins Brodies LLP

Posted: 6th August 2015

One of Scotland’s largest and best-known family law teams has joined Brodies LLP from Simpson & Marwick, bolstering the service to clients needing advice on complex and high-value family issues, as well as matters with an international dimension.

Partners Shaun George, Richard Smith and Lisa Girdwood and are all accredited family law specialists and they bring with them their 12-strong team, including Associates Donna McKay, Lydia McLachlan and Nicola Kerr, senior solicitor Susie Mountain and solicitors Zoe Wray, Rachael Latcham and Louise Borrowman.


Bill Drummond, Managing Partner of Brodies, said: “Shaun, Richard and Lisa have an outstanding reputation among their clients and the Scottish legal sector alike for their expertise, which extends to mediation and collaborative family law. They are well known for their great discretion and effective resolution of challenging cases and for managing high-value and complex divorce and other family matters, often with international aspects.

“This move is designed to enhance the breadth and depth of those services in a world where longevity, multi-jurisdictional asset ownership and growing legal and tax environment divergence and complexity all require careful consideration by individuals and families.”
