    Harper Macleod’s roots go back to 1988, when Lorne Crerar, later to become Professor Lorne Crerar CBE and chairman of the firm, led a small group, with another partner, and converted the nascent business division of a Glasgow court firm into a separate commercial practice. Professor Crerar was warned by stalwarts of the profession that building a commercial law firm of scale from scratch just couldn’t be done, a challenge that was readily taken up. Harpers, as the legal startup was known, subsequently took over a niche corporate firm called Macleods to become Harper Macleod, and the rest is history.

    In 2002, Martin Darroch joined the firm as Finance Director and in 2006 became the first-ever non-lawyer Chief Executive of a Scottish law firm. The firm’s growth was meteoric, expanding its footprint all over Scotland as it quickly became one of the country’s leading firms and a pioneer in changing the way legal partnerships operated. From the start, Harper Macleod was a business that just happened to be a law firm.

    Driving forward

    Today, Harper Macleod is one of the largest professional partnerships in Scotland, serving clients and their interests in Scotland, the UK and beyond. The firm has grown consistently in scale, in finances and also in terms of the role it plays in the civic and economic community across Scotland.

    The firm’s core values have remained consistent over many years. We are:

    • Entrepreneurial & Innovative
    • Open & Collaborative
    • Responsible & Ethical

    We provide a high-level premium service at an affordable price. The way we do this is by streamlining time-consuming minor tasks with the assistance of technology and with a unique and transparent approach to pricing.

    Anyone who has instructed a Solicitor in the past will know there is a lot more to legal representation than simply getting advice. We, of course, provide honest, accurate, and upfront legal advice, but over and above that we are a service-focused, affordable firm.

    Affordable Family Law

    Let’s be honest, lawyers can be expensive. We reduce the cost of our services to our clients by being relentlessly selective with our overheads. We outsource our cash room, accountancy, IT, and even our receptionist. Meaning we can have these essential elements in our business at a fraction of the usual cost. Our main office is in Stepps, in North Glasgow, with smaller unstaffed meeting facilities in Glasgow and Falkirk. These factors, along with many more, reduce our overheads versus many of our competitors.

    We operate a predominately paperless office, don’t have unnecessary junior members of staff, and instead look to modern solutions to administration. We use industry-leading software technology to automate a number of tasks that you would otherwise be charged for. Our business model is streamlined and we pass those savings on to you without any sacrifice to the service that we offer. We offer a unique billing structure that is more beneficial to you and completely transparent with no hidden costs.
