Team of specialists across all legal disciplines


Offices throughout Scotland

Here with you, here for you

As one of Scotland's leading full service law firms, Harper Macleod has specialists across all legal disciplines, covering every service you are likely to need in both your professional and personal life. We offer a complete range of legal services for business, individuals & families, the public sector, and the modern rural economy in Scotland, the UK and beyond.



Dealmakers highlights the work of Harper Macleod’s Corporate | M+A team. Robotic lawnmowers, B2B gaming, international energy engineering, award-winning office fit-outs, clinical trials software, and sustainable water filtration are just some of our highlights from another busy 12 months.


Resolve highlights the extensive and high profile work of our Dispute Resolution team. It also reviews some of the key trends and changes in dispute resolution in Scotland from the changes to the law of prescription to the continuing emergence of group litigation. We also look ahead to what we see on the horizon, from challenges to new oil exploration, land reform and unlawful means conspiracy.

The Blueprint

In partnership with AtkinsRealis, we brought together stakeholders with a direct interest in Scotland's public sector built environment. The Blueprint is a culmination of those discussions, focusing on innovative funding in housing partnerships, retrofitting at scale, community building, and city centre regeneration, all under the lens of achieving net zero goals.

The Brief Magazine

The Brief is Harper Macleod’s regular magazine for individuals and families. In this issue we take a look at the unexpected turns life can take, and the legal advice you might need when it does.


Associate highlights the work of our Commercial and Regulatory team. Regardless of size or sector, every organisation has responsibilities to meet if it is to achieve its objectives, whether that means overseas expansion, or fulfilling corporate governance and regulatory requirements.

Green Freeports

Our latest report examines Scotland's two new Green Freeports in the Forth and Inverness and Cromarty Firth, highlighting their role in stimulating investment, jobs, and regeneration based on insights from diverse sector stakeholders.

Harper Macleod Annual Report 2022/23
