Scots Counsel is our cross-border referral service that we offer to law firms that need to instruct and work alongside Scots law qualified lawyers on transactions or cases.
The synergy we can create when working with leading English and international law firms means that together we can address the legal challenges facing clients in an ever-changing market. We are, in short, Scots Counsel of choice.
Our Scots Counsel team is committed to building strong and collaborative working relationships with other law firms in need of Scots law expertise. Our success in supporting English and international law firms on cross-border matters relies not only on our outstanding legal pedigree, but also on our availability, ability to understand complex issues and our track record in delivering quick, well-considered, concise and cost-effective advice.
- To allow our referral partner to provide a seamless multi-jurisdictional service to their client, demonstrating added value and cost-effectiveness.
- To allow our referral partner to maintain the principal client contact.
- To provide our referral partner with the same high quality advice and round-the-clock support from the Shepherd and Wedderburn team as they would expect from their own lawyers.
- To work with our referral partner to price a deal competitively.
Each month our team of experienced cross-border lawyers will bring you short bulletins, articles and alerts designed to highlight Scottish legal developments relevant to law firms working on deals with a Scottish element, which we hope will be of relevance and value to law firms south of the Border who may be undertaking work with a Scottish dimension.
