SKO was established in 2008 and is now the largest niche family law practice in Scotland. Based in George Street in Edinburgh, with consulting rooms in London, we have top tier ranking in both The Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners UK guide to the legal profession.

We have unrivalled expertise and experience in a number of areas of family law practice: we have four family mediators; four family arbitrators; three collaborative family lawyers; eight solicitors who undertake exclusively family law work and experienced and dedicated support staff.

We practise exclusively Scots family law, although many of our clients are ex-pats or work in England and Wales or abroad. We don’t dabble in areas where we don’t have the necessary expertise. Our preference is for an independent, multi-disciplinary team approach, which allows us to work with other specialists- family lawyers in other jurisdictions; tax, family office, reputation management, corporate, immigration, property or employment lawyers; accountants, wealth management advisors and trustees. This means we can pull together highly effective teams, which best serve the unique needs of each and every client.
