Home visits

Date: 
13 October 2016

A Scottish law firm is offering home visits to its clients rather than insisting on formal office meetings.

Edinburgh-headquartered Boyd Legal has travelled as far afield as the Shetland Isles to hold meetings with clients, and says it will see clients anywhere in Scotland. The firm has additional offices in Glasgow, Aberdeen, Inverness and Kirkcaldy. The firm does recover travel costs from clients.

Managing partner Peter Boyd said clients feel more at ease in their own home and are able to discuss their personal and financial affairs in a more relaxed setting. Home visits have been particularly popular among estate planning, wills and trusts advice clients.

Boyd described a recent trip to Gartmore in the Loch Lomond National Park to visit a couple, one of whom was less mobile due to a recent operation: “It really didn’t feel like work in the slightest.”
