What other solicitors say about us:
“We have worked with Cat MacLean and her team for a few years – and have found that outsourcing dispute resolution to them is just what we have been looking for.
We have spent a long time building the relationships we have with our clients, and it is easy for that relationship to be damaged – particularly when a dispute or litigation is threatened. Put simply, we want to feel comfortable that what we outsource gets dealt with as well, and in the same way, as we would hope to do ourselves. We also don’t want to feel the need to oversee what others are doing that.
Cat and her team fit that bill in all respects. The work we have passed to them has been dealt with efficiently, in a manner similar to the way that we would approach it – and in a way that reinforces our client relationships”
“We instructed Cat and her team at MBM Commercial on behalf of an English based client, bringing proceedings in the Scottish courts against a Scottish defendant. We found her and her team to be very responsive, commercial, cost effective and exceedingly user friendly. We would not hesitate instructing MBM again and would recommend them to anyone looking for Scottish legal advice. Indeed, since our initial litigation instruction our commercial property team have instructed the property team at MBM and the firm has been added to our internal list of recommended Scottish lawyers.” – Howes Percival
