Turcan Connell’s Divorce and Family Law Team is firmly established as one of the leading divorce practices in Scotland. The Team has enjoyed a top band listing in both Chambers Guide to the Legal Profession and the Legal 500 for many years, Chambers offering the view in the 2013 Edition: “Scottish family stalwart Turcan Connell continues to be regarded by many as “the premier firm” in this area.”
In our Edinburgh office Alasdair Loudon and Gillian Crandles enjoy exceptional reputations as leaders in the field of Family Law. Alasdair is a fellow of the International Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers and Gillian is qualified as a solicitor in both Scotland and England. In addition, Noel Ferry provides a wealth of experience as a divorce and family law solicitor who leads Turcan Connell’s expanding Glasgow team. Alasdair, Gillian and Noel are all accredited by the Law Society of Scotland as specialists in Family Law.
Our London office is regularly utilised by various team members. We have connections with several leading English firms and are able to provide an integrated service as a result of both Gillian Crandles and Sally Nash being dual qualified as solicitors in England and Scotland.
Overall, our team consists of nine fully qualified divorce and family lawyers. This strength and depth is unrivalled within Scotland. A comprehensive service is provided to all individuals and families who are experiencing difficulties in their domestic lives.
We handle all aspects of separation, divorce, dissolution of civil partnerships, cohabitation and issues arising from relationship breakdown, whether of a financial nature or concerning the care of children. Our expertise and experience ensures that matters are dealt with confidently and efficiently, offering value for money to our clients.
Resolving Family Law Disputes
The vast majority of our cases are resolved by negotiation or by using alternative methods of dispute resolution. However, where settlement cannot be achieved and litigation becomes unavoidable, our divorce lawyers have a raft of experience in conducting cases in the Court of Session and in Sheriff Courts throughout Scotland.
Prenuptial and Post Nuptial Agreements
The Divorce and Family Law Team in Edinburgh and Glasgow have substantial experience in preparing prenuptial, pre-civil partnership and post nuptial agreements. Furthermore, we provide comprehensive advice on cohabitation rights and agreements including all matters in relation to the termination of cohabitation.
The Divorce and Family Law Team works closely with other experts across the Turcan Connell Group in Wills, Estate Planning and Succession, Tax, Land and Property and Wealth Management to provide a comprehensive service to our clients.
