Shepherd and Wedderburn is a leading UK law firm, with 60 partners and some 350 staff. We have offices in Edinburgh, Glasgow, London and Aberdeen. We provide corporate, commercial, public sector and private clients throughout the UK and abroad with a full range of legal services. Our client base includes not only large organisations, but also small and medium-sized enterprises, based both in the UK and increasingly further afield. Our approach is to acquire an in-depth understanding of our clients' businesses and the legal issues they face and to employ this knowledge in developing solutions-led advice.
