We seek to build a relationship with our clients, rather than simply completing a transaction. Dynamic and forward thinking, we are a Law Firm for Life.
The McKinstry Company was established in 1984 by our Chairman, Graeme McKinstry.
Quickly gaining an excellent reputation in litigation, we consistently developed and diversified over the years, becoming one of Ayrshire’s largest and most prestigious firms. Making four acquisitions between 2005 – 2015, we now have branches in Ayr and Girvan, with over 40 members of staff.
Our focus is on building relationships, rather than completing transactions. Offering clients a highly professional but also friendly service, which covers every stage and legal requirement, we are very much ‘A Law Firm for Life’.
Our five Partners offer different specialisms and are supported by a team of experienced solicitors. Together, we offer in depth knowledge and expertise across the wide spectrum of business law, property law, litigation, family law and all aspects of private client work, such as estate management, wealth management and asset protection.
With a dynamic, forward thinking and strategic approach, we are fully committed to each one of our clients and provide the best service to each one at all times. We work with both private clients and businesses representing all sectors of the local economy, from manufacturing and retail, to agriculture and service industries.
We were proud to win the prestigious awards for High Street Firm of the Year and Managing Partner of the Year (Graeme McKinstry) at the 2016 Law Awards of Scotland.
