Our objective is simple - to offer our clients the best team of personal and family lawyers in Scotland who can help them deal with whatever personal challenge life throws at them.

Brodies' personal and family law team is one of Scotland's largest, comprising some of the country's most highly regarded personal and family law specialists in the country. As part of the biggest law firm headquartered in Scotland, we provide a truly comprehensive service that meets all of our clients' personal legal and tax requirements.

Our team of solicitors, tax advisors, accountants and paralegals works across our offices in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen and acts for people from all walks of life, helping them to cope with difficult challenges, whenever these occur.

More important than our size is the quality of our advice, which is provided by solicitors who are recognised as specialists in their field and are commended for their commercial awareness. Our work is tailored to the individual needs of our clients, who have different objectives, family situations and assets.

Our clients include:

  • Individuals – we act for thousands of individual clients, often advising several members of the same family, and in some cases many generations of the same family. While there is no such person as a typical Brodies private client, many are business or land owners, executives, professionals or farmers
  • Trustees – we have a large trust practice, actively managing many trusts, preparing trust accounts and tax returns and providing full advice to trustees
  • Executors – we act in relation to numerous executries, assisting in winding up the estates of deceased persons
  • Institutions – we also act for a wide range of institutions, including a number of banks and life insurance companies. Our role varies and includes advising the institution direct on the services it provides to its customers and at other times delivering a service direct to its customers

"I think they're very strong and have a deep knowledge and wealth of expertise. They have lawyers who have been leading the private client practice in Scotland for a number of years."
