Patience and Buchan is noted as ‘the best family law practice in Aberdeen’. The team (which is ‘professional to the core’) specialises in high-value cases and child-related issues. Founding partner, Lorna Buchan is ‘hugely formidable’ in court, and has extensive experience in the financial and child aspects of divorce and family law matters. Highlights for Buchan included acting for a husband in complex divorce proceedings, in which his wife refused to enter into negotiations about a jointly-owned property, leading to a successful action for its division and sale. ‘A strong performer and tough litigator’, Ashley Simpson is particularly knowledgeable in disputes arising from cohabitation. Associate Gillian Smith is also recommended for disputes involving children and international relocation.
