SKO Recognition in Chambers and Partners HNW 2023 Guide
21st July 2023
We are delighted to have retained our place as the highest ranking Scottish firm in Chambers and Partners High Net Worth UK-wide Guide to Family Lawyers published today and that three of the four named individuals from Scotland are with SKO.
The Guide notes that, "There is no question that SKO is the firm most suited to effectively carrying out complex and sophisticated work in the Scottish market." and that "SKO lawyers are consistently responsive and empathetic, and demonstrate a deep understanding of the law."
Of the four Scottish individuals ranked, three are with SKO. Rachael Kelsey retains her place as the only Scot in the first tier of practitioners with it being noted that she "is the leading practitioner in the field in Scotland. Truly untouchable." and that she "is just outstanding in every way - you feel such confidence when she is working on your case. She's also kind and insightful and has a great ability to see things from the client's perspective."
Both Alison Edmondson and Robert Gilmour are recognised as leading practitioners, with it being noted that Alison "is a class act. In terms of family law advice she operates with an iron fist in a velvet glove" and that she "is sensible, wise, pragmatic - yet tough and absolutely prepared to fight when needed. She is the perfect lawyer - empathetic and understanding, but also good at analysing and setting the legals out really clearly and dispassionately."
Robert Gilmour is "exceptionally able and engenders a great feeling of trust." and "an absolute legal encyclopedia. He's very knowledgeable and thorough."
