Our expert dispute resolution team is here to take ownership of your dispute and fight your corner. From property or business disputes to professional negligence or problems arising from Wills and Trusts, our specialist litigators will provide expert and strategic guidance to help you through what can often be a stressful situation.

Specialist litigators and accredited mediation experts

We will work with you to fully understand your objectives and proactively deliver solutions that fit your needs, whilst ensuring we manage expectations and are clear on costs. Our clients tell us they value our clear, straightforward and practical advice in situations that very often involve complex legal issues. 

We are specialists in negotiation and accredited mediation experts and, where appropriate, we will aim to resolve disputes without having to go to court. Where court action cannot be avoided, we will make sure you understand what is happening at each stage and help make the experience as stress-free as possible. We will fight your corner and make sure that your case is argued as robustly as possible. 

We regularly advise on disputes in the areas of building and planning, insolvency and debt, business, partnership and directorship issues, professional negligence and Wills, Trusts and Executries. We also have specialist teams dealing with personal injury claims, divorce, family law and employment law. 

If you are experiencing problems with personal debt, including debt from personal guarantees over business borrowing, or if you are being pursued by a liquidator or an administrator in relation to your former business, our experienced dispute resolution lawyers can help.  

We advise on matters relating to personal insolvency/bankruptcy (including sequestration and trust deeds), recall of sequestration, challengeable transactions (including gratuitous alienations and unfair preferences), wrongful trading claims, breach of fiduciary duties/misfeasance claims, liaising with liquidators/administrators on behalf of company directors, personal guarantees and director disqualification. 

Our commercial litigation team is experienced in dealing with disputes affecting individuals and families which arise out of commercial matters. That may be a private wealth dispute, one arising from a private contract between family members or a dispute between shareholders, directors or partners in a family business.  

We recognise that where private commercial matters are concerned, reputation and confidentiality are of paramount importance. Going to court will not always be the answer, and we always provide clear, straightforward and pragmatic advice, giving you the peace of mind that your dispute is being expertly and sensitively handled. 

Disputes that arise following the death of a family member are extremely difficult to deal with and it is crucial that clear, objective and constructive advice is taken as early as possible. We advise on a wide range of disputes, including those relating to the interpretation and validity of Wills, actions for accounting against attorneys or executors and petitions for the variation of trusts. As one of the only top-ranked firms in Scotland to provide specialist advice in this area, we have worked with individuals and families in the most complex and sensitive cases in the country.
