About Us


This website has been created by Shiells Solicitors and Estate Agents to provide relevant information about our firm and legal services.

Shiells Solicitors and Estate Agents has been in business for over a hundred years. Based in the City of Brechin, we act for clients all over Scotland, as well as in England and overseas. We have lawyers who are qualified in Scots and English law. For our clients, we also have a panel of trusted overseas lawyers, who can assist with overseas matters.

Our experienced and diverse solicitors offer a refreshingly personal and practical approach to the law.

We believe that the best advice comes from people you trust. We also know that you need a friendly and professional response when the need arises. We think that we are more than just a law firm — we truly aim to be your trusted advisers.

Our extremely impressive Estate Agency service is second to none. Nobody sells houses quicker than us.

Shiells has one of the busiest residential Conveyancing departments in the region. We avoid the factory processing model which is often adopted, using approachable and expert lawyers to deliver a service which the nature of this transaction deserves.

We have a specialist commercial arm, Shiells Commercial Lawyers™, which is proud to act for some extremely heavyweight organisations, as well as our impressive SME clients.

We have recently added a valuable investment and tax planning division, Shiells Financial Services™, which, together with our Personal Law department, can save our clients substantial sums, and give answers to difficult personal issues.

Our unique Shiells Senior Services™ recognises that our elderly population may increasingly need support from a trusted professional – we have designed affordable service plans to help them cope and plan for the future.

Our Personal Law department covers Wills, Executries, Powers of Attorney, Trusts, Guardianships, and Family Law Services, in fact, anything that affects you as an individual.

We look forward to meeting you in person.
