Norman is recognised as one of Scotland’s leading private client lawyers. He specialises in advising high net worth individuals and their families in relation to succession planning, asset protection, inheritance tax mitigation, wills, trusts, executries (probate) and incapacity planning. Norman is the trusted legal adviser to a wide range of clients, from the relatively well off, to some of Scotland’s wealthiest families. As well as being a lawyer, Norman is a fully qualified Chartered Accountant, and is well known for his financial acumen and commercial approach. He has a particular interest and expertise in winding up complex estates involving family businesses, and excels in providing advice to entrepreneurs regarding the important interaction across personal, wider family and business interests.

Norman particularly enjoys working as part of a team of specialist family advisers, including accountants, investment managers and independent financial advisers. Clients and their other professional advisers comment on his down-to-earth manner and his ability to give clear and concise advice that is free of legal jargon.

Chambers UK 2018 note that Norman is 'trustworthy and client-focused'. A source outlines his strengths, enthusing that:

He is in a different class when it comes to a legal adviser - clients see him as a go-to sage adviser. I see him as a business-oriented lawyer - he can deal with families but from a business perspective, and this ties up with satisfying personal objectives.
