Aberdein Considine’s family law team is headed up by Ruth Aberdein, whose particular expertise lies in high value separation and divorce cases, as well as in drafting pre-nuptial agreements for individuals with significant assets at stake. The firm is experienced in complex child cases, concerning child abduction, residency and contact arrangements, and allegations by one or both parties of abusive behaviour towards the children or spouse. Karl Brown is well-versed in such cases, while Leonie Burke, who joined from Brodies LLP in late 2019, is adept at handling financial provision arrangements where forensic accountancy has been required. April Campbell serves clients in the west central belt of Scotland, heading up the Glasgow team, while Isabelle Douglas is another key member of the team.
