After reading the reviews I am delighted I will not be pursuing my losses with this company. Victoria came on the phone didn't know the facts of the matter at all. The only fact she did know was her fee, then at the end of the call saying "bye-bye" in a sarcastic high voice...like she had won the conversation...Anyone reading this please use Digby Brown they care more about the clients losses, rather than money-making.

Stay well away, completely unprofessional unethical company. Phoned and emailed after an initial meeting got no response and then got sent a letter with huge bill for work not requested or discussed with no discussion of price beforehand.

Definitely would stay clear of this company. Myself and my partner dealt with Alex one of the partners, concerning family issues with his ex wife. Not client friendly ie.. rude, obnoxious, disinterested, left feeling exasperated after our meeting. Avoid!

Dedicated team of private client, corporate and property lawyers. Small enough to be a partner-led firm, but with a broad experience across a range of sectors

About This Branch

Description

In 1988, Lorne Crerar and another young partner in a Glasgow court firm took a couple of support staff and converted its business division, which had recently started, into a separate commercial practice. The new start was Harpers, which subsequently took over a niche corporate firm called Macleods, to become Harper Macleod. In 2002, Martin Darroch joined the firm as Finance Director and was appointed Chief Executive in 2006 - Harper Macleod was the first firm in Scotland to appoint a non-lawyer chief executive - with the now Professor Crerar as Chairman. Over the years the firm went from strength to strength, expanding its footprint all over Scotland. In 2014, the firm took over niche private client practice, Bird Semple, to significantly extend its offering in personal legal services. Today, Harper Macleod is one of the largest professional partnerships in Scotland, serving clients and their interests in Scotland, the UK and beyond and generating in excess of £26 million in turnover - a figure that has consistently grown regardless of the economic backdrop.
