Member of the Week - Macleod and MacCallum
Macleod and MacCallum have been serving clients across the Highlands and Islands of Scotland for over 50 years. Now employing over 65 members of staff, the firm have in this time developed a full range of legal, property and financial services enabling them to effectively and efficiently deal with and respond to the needs of clients, whether individuals or businesses. The firm are delighted to be shortlisted as finalists in this year's Legal Awards of Scotland in the Family Law Firm of the Year category, against very strong central belt competition. The final is on 30th March in Edinburgh and the Family Law team are extremely proud to have reached this stage.
Over the course of this week, we’ll be looking at various units within Macleod and MacCallum including: Lettings Department, Property Department, Rural Land, Private Client, and Family Law. Today’s focus is the Rural Land Department.
Macleod and MacCallum have a long standing tradition of providing agricultural and crofting law and rural property advice of the highest quality to many clients throughout the Highlands and Islands. This tradition is carried on today by the current Rural Land team, who can provide expert advice on all aspects of rural law.
The law as it applies to agricultural holdings has undergone significant change recently, most notably with the introduction of the Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2016. Crofting has always been a complicated area of law and that remains true today with successive governments introducing legislation in an ongoing attempt to modernise the legal framework, with mixed results.
Macleod and MacCallum's Rural Land team are ideally placed to provide legal advice across a full range of rural land matters. Ruth is a registered paralegal with extensive experience in property law and a particular expertise in crofting transactions. Gary heads up the Rural Land team and advises clients on all aspects of rural property including the purchase and sale of farms, estates, crofts and forestry and also provides advice to rural businesses including farming partnerships and limited companies.
