One of Scotland's leading law firms
A legal startup business
In 1988, Lorne Crerar and another young partner in a Glasgow court firm took a couple of support staff and converted its business division, which had recently started, into a separate commercial practice. The new start was Harpers, which subsequently took over a niche corporate firm called Macleods, to become Harper Macleod. In 2002, Martin Darroch joined the firm as Finance Director and was appointed Chief Executive in 2006 - Harper Macleod was the first firm in Scotland to appoint a non-lawyer chief executive - with the now Professor Crerar as Chairman. Over the years the firm went from strength to strength, expanding its footprint all over Scotland. In 2014, the firm took over niche private client practice, Bird Semple, to significantly extend its offering in personal legal services.
One of Scotland's leading law firms
Today, Harper Macleod is one of the largest professional partnerships in Scotland, serving clients and their interests in Scotland, the UK and beyond and generating in excess of £26 million in turnover - a figure that has consistently grown regardless of the economic backdrop.
The motivation has always been the desire to do things differently - a different way of serving clients had real potential for business success.
What makes Harper Macleod different from the competition is our drive. It stems from our roots as a dynamic and entrepreneurial firm. Over time, this drive has helped us develop a culture that takes calculated risks and pushes for innovative solutions. We don't just see ourselves as lawyers, we see ourselves as problem solvers and business advisors.
Our drive to try harder, innovate, understand and partner with our clients sets Harper Macleod apart from other firms. This is how we do things. This is our formula for bringing success to our clients.
