Halliday Campbell WS are Signet Accredited Specialist Commercial Litigation Solicitors and Scottish Legal Awards Litigation Team of the Year finalists in both 2011 and 2012. We provide a commercial and contractual dispute resolution and avoidance service to local, national and international clients.

What we do

We do what we know we’re good at: we manage and resolve commercial disputes and litigation. We can help any business which finds itself involved in a dispute and we are regularly retained by solicitors from England and other countries to represent their clients in cases before the Scottish courts. We also assist other Scottish lawyers who don’t specialise in litigation but want to be able to refer their clients to an accredited specialist firm that they can trust to do the work well for a reasonable fee. Whether you are a business client, a solicitor from another jurisdiction or a Scottish lawyer who wants to provide a service to clients by establishing a relationship with a niche specialist firm, we will be happy to tell you how we can help if you get in touch.
