Our Parliamentary Law Expertise

Our approach

We monitor legislation as it progresses through the Scottish, UK and European Parliaments and are well-placed to advise our clients on forthcoming changes in the law.

We regularly advise clients on the interpretation of legislation that affects them, including the founding legislation of public bodies or legislation that will have financial and policy implications for the way a client operates.

Our expertise

We have experience in the provision of legislative drafting services and can assist with the drafting of primary and secondary legislation, including Bills, Order of Council, Orders in Council, Royal Charters and Harbour Orders.

We act for the promoters of Private Bills in the Scottish Parliament and are experienced in this process.

Our team can assist with:

  • keeping you informed of legislative developments;
  • interpreting legislation and advising on its application to your organisation;
  • legislative drafting; and
  • advising those seeking to promote or object to private legislation.
