A law firm for life

Our Vision & Values

Although we have been in the business for over 30 years, we’re no typical high street firm.

The McKinstry Company keep pushing forward to ensure and maintain excellent service and results not just for our clients, but for the wider community in Ayrshire and beyond. We have fast become one of the largest and most prestigious firms in Ayrshire, and we did it by building strong relationships with our clients who we value and being stakeholders within the local community. Here are just some of the reasons clients choose to work with us, and help us achieve our vision.

A Law Firm for Life
Our clients are important to us, not just their issues. From helping build some of Scotland’s most recognisable and innovative businesses, to keeping your local heroes running smoothly, we are proud to serve our community. We don’t just work with commercial clients but individuals and families too. We guide our clients through each phase of their life, from buying their first home to distributing their estate. We also help them with anything they might need along the way, whether they suffer an accident, start a business or need to bring a relationship to an end.

Customer-Centric Service
We have built our business on getting our clients the results they need with an efficient, friendly and personable service. Our clients return to us again and again, because we get to know them, their family, and their business. They know they can contact us whenever they need to, and that we will speak to them candidly about how best to proceed. We strive to continually improve our service to customers, by adopting contemporary means of communication and keeping those we work with up-to-date with legal issues. We ensure our website, digital communications, blog and social media channels to be a source of information for our clients and a wider audience. Our team understands that technology and digital trends move quickly, which is why we aim to always be one step ahead.

Champions of Local People & Businesses
We are not just proud of the work we do, we are proud of who we do it with and how it impacts our local community. The McKinstry Company helps local people and businesses do great things, and we do everything we can to help them succeed in the long term. From sharing their work and achievements on our blog and social media, to making sure they are prepared for any bumps in the road, we help Ayrshire businesses thrive. We connect with our clients, and when you work with The McKinstry Company, it means partnership and support.
