Our corporate lawyers have the experience, knowledge and strength and depth to provide the right commercial advice for our clients. Whether that is part of a transaction, or as a sounding board for day-to-day issues, we generate value.

We are specialists in all aspects of corporate law and governance, advising private and public sector clients in Scotland, across the UK and abroad. We act for those who are buying and selling companies and businesses, undertaking corporate restructuring, mergers, and schemes of arrangement. We advise organisations of all sizes, from those that are listed on equity capital markets through to start ups and owner managed businesses as well as private individuals with business interests. We act in relation to shareholder arrangements, joint ventures and equity investments, private equity, partnerships of all kinds and investment funds.

Brodies have a depth of resource, with expert advisors with sector-specific market, commercial and legal expertise across the partner level, ably supported by proactive associates with strong work ethics and good, polished client relationship and organisational skills.

Legal 500 UK 2024

We provide tailored legal advice drawn from wide ranging sector-specific expertise including oil and gas, renewables, transport, infrastructure, food and drink, technology, manufacturing, healthcare, real estate and many others. 

Our team's performance is recognised at the annual Deal & Dealmakers awards: Legal Advisor of the Year, recognising the exceptional skills of lawyers involved in deals, in particular their innovative approach and ability to resolve complicated issues. We are the current award winners and have been winners or finalists from 2014 to 2023. The group is also recognised by Chambers UK and Legal 500 UK as a top tier ranked practice, with an additional 11 individual rankings.

We routinely act alongside London based and international law firms, but are equally comfortable providing Scots jurisdictional support as part of multi jurisdictional transactions.

As part of the leading and largest law firm headquartered in Scotland, we are able to draw on the expertise of specialists from across our firm. We work in close collaboration with our tax, real estate, employment, banking and pensions colleagues to deliver a complete service to our clients. And importantly, while operating as one firm, we have local strength and depth in each of our offices which allows us to keep fully appraised of market conditions and increase our sector focus.
