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; three family arbitrators; two collaborative family lawyers; seven solicitors and a trainee solicitor, all of whom undertake exclusively family law work. The lawyers are assisted by dedicated and diligent support staff who have years of experience in family law.

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.
