Home What We Do Entrepreneurs, SMEs & Family Owned Businesses

Davidson Chalmers has been closely involved with young growing companies and their investors for many years. Indeed the majority of our client base is and always has been drawn from the SME family-owned or owner-managed business sector across Scotland.

The family business is thriving in Scotland and throughout the UK.There are more than 178,000 family businesses in Scotland, employing approximately 50% of the private sector workforce, according to Paul Andrews of Family Business United. These include some well-known Scottish names such as Baxters, Macsween, Kinloch Anderson and Arnold Clark.

Scottish family businesses continue to make a significant contribution to the economy, there are unique and sometimes emotional challenges they must contend with such as the issue of succession planning. This very issue was flagged up as one of the most common concerns facing owners of family firms in a recent UK survey by the Institute for Family Business (IFB).

No matter how complex the situation, we'll offer you clear, practical and unequivocal commercial advice - not pages of jargon - that balances the needs of the business, the family and the individuals involved.

We are recognised for our positive, practical approach and for providing a friendly, accessible, business-like service that helps to make the legal aspects of your business as straightforward as possible.
