A partner in our private client services team, Colin specialises in advising families on protecting their wealth in relation to succession and estate planning. He is ranked as a top private client lawyer by the Chambers & Partners legal directory. As a chartered tax advisor and member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners, Colin also provides expert professional advice on tax planning and family trusts. 

He works with a range of private business clients such as landowners, entrepreneurs, trustees and people moving to the UK.  A fascinating part of his work involves Scotland’s heritage and nationally important works of art. It’s a perfect match because Colin has an abiding interest in such subjects beyond work.

Colin’s interests also encompass military history, and he served in the army before pursuing his successful legal career.
