About Us

ELP Arbuthnott McClanachan directors


ELP Arbuthnott McClanachan is an amalgamation of two long established Edinburgh law firms known for providing quality expert advice to their clients with a strong personal touch.

Both ELP Solicitors and Arbuthnott & McClanachan were specialist law firms who represented their clients in the areas of estate agency, conveyancing, wills, powers of attorney, and executries.  ELP Solicitors’ Employment Law Practice was also well known for providing specialist employment law advice and representation to employer and employee clients.

The partners of ELP Solicitors and Arbuthnott & McClanachan, Duncan McFadzean, Laura McFadzean, Bob Arbuthnott and Catherine McClanachan, decided to join forces with a view to providing their clients with an even better service across the city of Edinburgh and beyond.  As a result, ELP Arbuthnott McClanachan is able to provide expert advice and strength in depth, and our clients are safe in the knowledge that we are continuing our philosophy of offering the best possible advice direct to our clients from experienced specialist solicitors.  The quality of the advice we give and the strong personal relationship between our solicitors and our clients is paramount for us, and we believe that this adds real value for our clients.

ELP Arbuthnott McClanachan offer our clients experience and expertise in the following areas:

I was more than happy with the advice and representation which I received from ELP in relation to an employment tribunal dispute with my employers. From start to finish, ELP kept me up to date with any developments regarding my case during what was a stressful 6 months out of work. They also achieved a good result for me in advance of the Tribunal hearing. I would definitely recommend the firm to anyone in similar circumstances.

Many thanks for all your help in finalising John’s affairs, we would have been lost without you. Again many thanks.

Ian was the best in helping me out after I contacted him with an employment law issue. I contacted a few solicitors in Edinburgh via their online web forms and Ian replied to me within minutes of my query which was excellent! Other solicitors I contacted at the same time either didn’t reply at all or replied weeks later which was not helpful!

Ian was helpful, friendly and knowledgeable – never too busy to reply to my emails when I was looking for information, and occasional reassurance. I had an initial call with Ian, then a face to face in the office and after that most contact was by email which suited me perfectly. Ian was professional at all times and really made me feel valued as a client. His hard work resulted in a favourable result for me, and I would not hesitate to recommend his services to anyone. If I ever need a solicitor again in the future, Ian will be the first person I contact. Thank you!

We are a medium sized law firm which does not have a department specialising in employment law matters. We have used ELP in relation to any employment law input we require as a firm. We have also referred a number of our clients to ELP for advice on such matters as we value the expert knowledge and quality service that Duncan McFadzean and his team provide. It is of paramount importance to us that both our own and our clients’ affairs are dealt with in a confidential and sensitive manner, and we know that we can rely on ELP for this. We would not hesitate to recommend ELP to either employers or employees who need advice in the employment law field.

I would like to express my gratitude towards you for the professional, courteous, efficient, and helpful manner in which you conducted yourself within the business of dealing with myself and the sale of my property. You are a credit to yourself and the people that you represent.

We have used ELP Solicitors everytime we have bought and sold property (three times now!). From the very early stages of initial meetings and photographs right through to completion we always felt that they were handling our affairs with care and attention. Lisbeth-Ann was great at making all aspects of the Conveyancing process clear and easy for us to understand. They were quick to answer any questions or concerns we had and we felt that they always had our interests at heart. We would highly recommend them for their professional service and friendly approachable manner.
