Scullion LAW est 1979. We are a multi award winning law firm with offices in Glasgow and Hamilton.

The history of Scullion LAW

Founding Partner Nicholas James Scullion went to University at 22 as a mature student and did his apprenticeship at Glasgow City Chambers.

He worked in the Public Sector for a few years before starting his own business in 1979 with his wife Dorothy, then known as Nicholas J. Scullion & Co. Solicitors.

Specialising in Conveyancing he moved into offices at 71 Quarry Street Hamilton, where he worked as a Sole Practitioner until the miners’ strike when he diversified into court work. He quickly developed a reputation as an excellent performer, winning cases other Solicitors would not take on. He remains one of the leading Criminal Defence and Road Traffic lawyers in Scotland. He is passionate about the LAW and genuinely cares about other people.

As the firm grew, Nicholas moved to 5 Church Street, Hamilton and by 1992 employed 7 Solicitors.

The Conveyancing Department expanded and we created an award winning team of hard working professionals, of which we are very proud. We now have one of the top ten practices in Scotland and Property LAW is at the core of our business – going from strength to strength.

We re-branded from Nicholas J. Scullion & Co to Scullion LAW in 2010 after we won the prestigious Criminal LAW Firm of the Year Award. Since then we have won several national awards including the prestigious Excellence in Client Care Award 2016 and the Commitment to the Community 2019. You can read more about our awards here.

We have offices in Hamilton, Saltmarket Glasgow and West End. We can represent clients throughout Scotland and are always happy to help.

Mr Scullion continues to work as a Consultant and his son Nicholas now runs the business working with Director Kris Buchanan and a team of experienced legal professionals. Our people are core to the success of the firm.

Over the last 40 years, we have developed an enviable reputation for excellent service by always putting clients first.

Our main areas of focus are: Family LAW, Wills & Future Planning, Estates, Property LAW, Criminal Law and Road Traffic Defence.

If there is anything that we can do to help you or your family, please get in touch.

We are here to help.

Thank you.
