Harper Macleod LLP
I am based in our Glasgow office but regularly represent clients across the central belt. I have been a family lawyer for twenty years and am accredited by the Law Society of Scotland as a specialist in family law. I am also an accredited family Law Mediator.
I have a particular interest in financial provision on divorce, and the more complex aspects of separation and divorce, including where business interests are involved or where there are complicated legal issues. I also advise on issues to do with children, cohabitation disputes, preparation of agreements such as cohabitation agreements and pre and post nuptial agreements.
I am part of a large family team covering all of Scotland and meaning I can draw on the expertise of other team members where appropriate.
I am a family law mediator and also trained in collaborative practice, both of which are excellent alternative forms of dispute resolution. My aim is always to find the best path forward for my client, both in terms of outcome and minimising associated expense. Where a negotiated outcome is not possible, for example if urgent protective orders are required, I am experienced in court work, both in the Sheriff Court or in the Court of Session.
