Areas of Practice


Among the members of Arnot Manderson Advocates are counsel at the very forefront of family law. Our dedicated Family Law Group reflects the high level of expertise within our stable in this area. Many of our members possess extensive experience of advising on a wide variety of family law issues and conducting all types of family law hearings and proofs. Appearances extend to Sheriff Courts throughout Scotland, both houses of the Court of Session and the UK Supreme Court. Our members are regularly invited to speak on family law matters at conferences and seminars. Some are also available for instruction as family law arbitrators.
