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.
Some people are surprised to learn that in Scotland, pre-nuptial (and post-nuptial) agreements, as well as cohabitation agreements can bind the parties. A growing number of people are entering into these agreements before setting up home or getting married.
You may also want to consider other methods of protecting your assets, such as putting certain of them into trust, or simply preparing an appropriate will.
We can offer you clear, expert advice on a range of options which will help you fulfil your objectives.
Why choose Morton Fraser
We have extensive experience of preparing pre-nuptial, post-nuptial and cohabitation agreements. We’re often instructed by clients who live or work abroad, or have assets or businesses outside of Scotland. As a result of our English law expertise and our international connections, we’re ideally placed to assist in these circumstances.
Our approach to fees
We understand that you need to get a handle on what our advice is going to cost. We offer fixed fee initial meetings where we can discuss the options with you. Wherever possible, we provide tailored fee quotes for much of our work. If that is not possible for all of the case, we will give you a clear indication of the likely cost.
