Burness Paull

Burness Paull is one of Scotland’s top independent law firms with 77 partners and over 550 staff across our offices in Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow. Our status as a truly independent firm gives us the ability to support our clients, and our people, in ways that they genuinely value. It means we can help our clients to grow, protect them, and save them time and money.


We have Scotland’s largest employment law team, advising on the full ‘life cycle’ of employment relations issues, ranging from recruitment, employment contracts/policy documentation, remuneration, benefits and rewards, business immigration, disciplinary and performance issues/absence management/grievance through to termination of employment and claims.


We service many of our clients throughout the UK. In Aberdeen, we have worked closely with the energy industry in particular, and we have a deep understanding of the unique working environment and the industrial relations issues that arise offshore. Our team win plaudits for their pragmatic, solution-driven way of thinking. We stand out from the crowd because of our employer/client focussed and driven approach, which we always adopt when providing employment law advice, whatever the industry sector.
