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.
Our clients range from PLCs and household-name businesses to sole traders, as well as public sector and third sector clients across the UK. Many of our lawyers are dual-qualified (Scotland/England and Wales).
If we think there's a better way of achieving your business goals, we'll tell you quickly and clearly why and how. Our lawyers are straight talking, pragmatic, accessible and commercially minded.
Benefits we bring
If you're negotiating a business contract - whether for the purchase or supply of goods or services, or any other commercial purpose - we can draft or review the contract and explain how contract law applies, ensuring that it "means what it says" without any unexpected or unwelcome terms being implied by law. The result will be clear written contract terms that give you certainty on your contractual rights and obligations.
We advise on dozens of commercial transactions every year so we know the likely pitfalls and how to pre-empt problems. Whatever comes up, the chances are that one of our experienced lawyers has seen it before so we provide peace of mind and protection against all contingencies. Our award-winning team is rated by both Legal 500 and Chambers as one of the best in Scotland.
Our approach to fees
We're happy to have an initial, free, no-obligation meeting to discuss how we can help. We can quote fixed fees for many types of work, including company secretarial services, trademark registration and trading terms and conditions. If it's not possible to provide a fixed fee then we'll give you a clear indication of the likely fee based on an agreed scope of work.
Please take a moment to answer our survey to let us know if you as a business owner would use the same firm for your business legal queries, as for your personal affairs?
We use Morton Fraser for all of our legal work and when we need general advice. They have never let us down, are a great team of people to deal with and I would highly recommend them to any company or individual.
