GLASGOW-based Scullion Law has strengthened its family law team with the appointment of Nicola Buchanan as a senior associate.

Ms Buchanan joins BLM Solicitors, where she worked for seven years. Prior to that, she worked for 17 years at Turnbull McCarron.

Scullion Law noted Ms Buchanan “specialises in divorce, financial provision, cohabitation, contact/residence disputes and relocation cases as well as the preparation and negotiation of minutes of agreements”.

It added: “Nicola has particular experience in complex financial provision cases and in highly acrimonious contact and residence disputes. She has extensive court experience.”

Judith Higson head of the family law team at Scullion Law, said: “These are exceptionally busy times for our family department. Throughout the pandemic, demand for our services has increased significantly and I feel confident with Nicola by my side that together we can continue to achieve more. We are doing all we can to support, advise and guide clients who are struggling during these unprecedented times and we have also partnered up with a support network of coaches, therapists and counsellors to aid our clients who need someone to talk to.”
