Owner managed businesses have a unique dynamic.


With successful owner managed businesses flying the flag for Scotland both at home and on a global stage, they are a vital component of the economy to be celebrated and supported.

As a leading commercial law firm in Scotland, it is crucial that we dedicate time and resources to working with your businesses, and playing our role in the wider business community.

That means we know who you are, we know what is going on in your market, and we have developed a deep understanding of the opportunities and challenges you often face when bringing together business and personal objectives.

Our extensive deal credentials as the market’s leading corporate dealmakers sets us apart from other firms but we believe it is our focus on advising the best owner-managed businesses working in, and from, Scotland that really makes us the best fit when it comes to advising OMBs.

How our team can help you:

We are highly experienced in the many challenges facing family and owner managed businesses including:

  • growth
  • innovation
  • opportunity
  • succession
  • partnership
  • governance
  • community
  • legacy

It is rare that we have not experienced a situation you may be facing – whether its incentivising staff, commercialising IP, setting up overseas, buying a business, sorting your wills, inheritance tax mitigation, preparing for an exit – and much more beyond that.

We provide ourselves on giving you “advice not options”, putting ourselves in your shoes and building upon our experience advising thousands of OMBs - of all shapes and sizes.

Recognising the need to align business and personal objectives, and achieve success for both, we take a joined up, holistic approach to advising business owner clients. Combining our corporate, private client and tax specialisms, we help you identify and scope out what is important to you and give you the road map and tools to make it happen.

Our partners enjoy acting as a "sounding board"; working hard to get to know you, understand your objectives, how you like things done and being there when you need to bounce things around.
