Shepherd and Wedderburn is the largest Scottish-headquartered UK law firm, with offices in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen, London and Dublin.
Establishing long-standing relationships of trust, rooted in legal advice and client service of the highest quality, is our hallmark.
Founded in 1768, Shepherd and Wedderburn has been at the forefront of innovation in all the key sectors of the economy – from the expansion of Edinburgh’s financial services sector to, more recently, our work with Scotland’s first tech unicorn and on landmark clean energy projects. Our focus has always been firmly on the future, and on ensuring we maintain our proud tradition of supporting innovation, economic growth and international commerce.
Our lawyers are currently advising organisations active in more than 120 overseas jurisdictions and we are privileged to work with organisations and individuals in Scotland, the UK and abroad who are leaders in their industries and sectors.
Shepherd and Wedderburn is a people business that values and rewards the contribution of colleagues across the firm. We are proud of our inclusive and collaborative culture, both internally and when working with clients, and are committed to encouraging and supporting diversity and social mobility.
Environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations are fundamental to Shepherd and Wedderburn’s strategy and progress as a business. Our ESG Statement provides a flavour of some of the many policies and initiatives we have implemented, often in close collaboration with our clients, to ensure our business is as diverse, inclusive, sustainable and robustly governed as it can be. At its heart are our clients, our people and the communities in which we live and work.
