A vastly experienced solicitor Shaun has practised family law for more than 25 years. He heads the Brodies’ Family team which is the largest in Scotland.
Shaun advises on all aspects of family law but has particular expertise in high value financial provision on divorce cases, often involving assets held overseas. He has been accredited by the Law Society of Scotland as a specialist in family law and also as a family law mediator.
A leading proponent of Collaborative practice, Shaun regularly deals with Collaborative family law cases. He sits on the National Committee of Consensus Collaboration Scotland and has been involved in the setting up of a European Collaborative Practice group. Shaun is also a qualified Family Law Arbitrator and has presented on various family law topics nationally and internationally.
Away from the office Shaun, a married father of two teenage children, enjoys a variety of sports. A keen golfer, he is often able to combine this interest with his love of travel - South Africa being a favourite destination.
Peers note that "he has done an enormous amount of Collaborative cases and he is really superb in the approach he takes."
