Thorntons Law LLP

Edinburgh, UK

As one of Scotland's largest full service law firms we have 56 partners, 166 Solicitors and almost 500 staff. We provide a wide range of specialist services with 18 Law Society of Scotland accredited specialists, 3 Solicitor Advocates and cross-border working with 7 dual-qualified solicitors. Our network of 14 offices includes Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Fife, Perth and Angus. We offer our clients high quality, cost-effective and practical advice.

One of our main strengths lies in our people and their specialisms and experience. The approach we take is to ensure that we have the right team(s) working with our clients and that each team acquires a comprehensive knowledge of our client’s operation and of the various legal issues they face allowing them to develop solutions specifically tailored to our client’s needs.

We work as a long term partner rather than just a provider to our clients and we take the time to ensure that we understand the markets our clients operate in as well as their long term aspirations to ensure the legal services we provide help to achieve their short as well as longer term goals. As a result, we have developed many long term and successful relationships and have been trusted to deliver long term multi disciplinary support for a variety of sectors including education, technology, media, food and drink, renewables, agricultural, publishing and public sector bodies.
