Scottish legal expert Gibson Kerr

Legal firm Gibson Kerr has carried out an extensive revamp of its website, in order to cement its credentials as one of Edinburgh’s top private client and family law solicitors.

The firm, which is based in the Capital’s New Town and specialises in family law issues such as residential property, wills, executries and divorces and separations, has expanded its web presence to provide more in-depth advice about important legal issues for its growing list of clients.

The £2000 revamp has seen a number of dedicated sections created on the Gibson Kerr website, providing information on the four main legal areas that the firm specialises in – family & personal law, buying & selling property, financial & tax advice, and advice on legal issues arising out of getting older.

The full story can be viewed on the Holyrood Partnership PR in Edinburgh website.

Gibson Kerr highlights "will ignorance"

Gibson Kerr highlights "will ignorance"

Many Scots are at risk of not securing their rightful inheritances because of ‘will ignorance’ by family members, according to one of Edinburgh’s leading legal firms.

Gibson Kerr believes that a lack of knowledge about the process of making or changing a will could have calamitous results for people and their families.

The scale of issue was highlighted in a survey by Brunel University, which showed that just 47% of people in the UK believed that it is dishonest for a care home nurse to persuade an elderly patient to change a will in their favour.

The figure in the Brunel survey was even lower than the number of people who thought it was dishonest to download music from the internet or make a copy of a CD that they had borrowed from a friend – Gibson Kerr believes this is another example of how people are unsure about the legal intricacies of making or changing their will.
