SKO retains Top Ranking and has more 'Leading Individuals' than any other firm in Legal 500
4th October 2023
SKO have retained Top Tier ranking in the Legal 500 Guide for Family Law in Scotland- with more leading individuals than any other firms and as one of only two firms in the first rank. Rachael Kelsey also retains her 'Hall of Fame' ranking- again one of only two lawyers in Scotland with that accolade.
The Guide this year notes, "Praised for its ‘unrivalled breadth and depth of knowledge’, boutique firm SKO fields a strong team, whose expertise runs the full gamut of family and child law matters, with demonstrable strength in multijurisdictional work, novel child law cases and surrogacy and parentage matters."
Five of SKO's lawyers are singled out, 'The highly regarded Rachael Kelsey, a ‘towering figure in family law’, has considerable expertise advising on both Scottish and international family law, and is a key member of the team alongside Robert Gilmour, who takes point on surrogacy, parentage and cohabitation issues, Alison Edmondson, who focuses on high-net-worth matters involving corporate and tax issues, Susan Oswald, who routinely acts for local authorities on public child law cases, and associate Seonaid Cochrane.'
