At Morton Fraser Lawyers we have highlighted clarity as our guiding principle.
This directs the way we communicate, the way we advise, the way we conduct relationships with our clients and the way we are totally transparent and upfront about our charges. This applies to all our services from the straightforward to the more complex.
Consolidation in the Scottish legal market has meant that there are fewer independent firms able to meet the demands of English and international transactions.
Our banking & finance team advises English and international law firms on corporate debt transactions, real estate finance, structured finance, performing & non-performing loan portfolio sales and on marine & aviation finance. We advise on transactional matters and on regulatory and policy questions in Scotland.
We regularly work with English and international law firms on high value and complex cross-border transactions. We understand how the Scottish elements of such transactions have to dovetail with advice provided by the lead firms and we focus on provision of Scottish input in the context of the wider deal. The strength and breadth of our experience means that we understand the market and the expectations of instructing law firms and their clients.
Through many years of delivering results for English and international law firms and their clients, we have a proven reputation for providing a level of service which is technically flawless, but which also presents advice and guidance in a manner which is pragmatic and commercial. We regularly deliver this service within tight timeframes and, where required, within pre-agreed, fixed fee structures (and other flexible billing arrangements).
Through our focus on Clarity and expeditious service delivery, we have grown to become one of Scotland's leading advisers in the financial markets, recognised as such by independent legal directories, including Legal 500 and Chambers.
Clarity is at the heart of everything we do and, accordingly, our advice is concise, focused and easy to follow. This commitment to Clarity also informs our approach to billing, through which we offer transparency, often agreeing fixed fees (and other flexible billing arrangements), so that you can be assured that your clients will only pay what they have agreed to pay.
