SKO is the largest niche family law practice in Scotland, winners of the Legal 500 'Boutique Law Firm of the Year 2023' and home to Legal 500 'Private Client Lawyer of the Year 2023'. Practising from Edinburgh and London, we are top ranked for family law in Scotland in The Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners UK guide to the legal profession; one of only two Scottish firms in Chambers and Partners HNW, and the only Scottish firm with practitioners in the Spear's 500 Family Law Index.
We have unrivalled expertise and experience in family law and reputation management practice. We have four family mediators; three family arbitrators; three collaborative family lawyers and twelve solicitors, all of whom undertake exclusively family law and reputation management 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. 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 and crisis management consultants, corporate, immigration, property or employment lawyers; accountants, wealth management advisors and trustees. We can pull together highly effective teams, which best serve the unique needs of each and every client.
