About Us

We are an open book – friendly, knowledgeable and approachable.

We strive to provide an excellent service to our clients.  All of our lawyers and paralegals are accessible. Support staff are fully trained and are dedicated to specific lawyers, ensuring consistency for our clients.

Our whole team takes pride in developing not only a professional but empathetic relationship with clients.  We give advice in a straightforward way so that it can be easily understood. We know that every client is different and we aim to deliver a service that is tailored to you.

At Patience and Buchan, while we offer more traditional forms of negotiation and litigation, we also provide a range of options both within and out with the office, such as mediation, collaboration and arbitration, to suit your specific needs.

Our lawyers have extensive training in the resolution of disputes whichever method is selected in an innovative and client focussed way. We specifically encourage clients to explore alternative methods of resolution following a relationship breakdown.

The Times recognised Patience and Buchan as one of the  best UK Law Firms for 2020 and again in 2021.  We have twice achieved the Award of Family Law Firm of the Year at the Law Awards of Scotland and our expertise has been consistently recognised year on year by our rankings in both of the UK’s leading independent law directories: Chambers & Partners Guide to the Legal Profession and Legal 500.

Patience and Buchan has Lawyers accredited by the Law Society of Scotland. All our Lawyers are long standing members of the Family Law Association of Scotland which requires its members to resolve issues as constructively as possible.
