Legal Support Team

A deep understanding of your business.

Legal support was our first desk. Over the past 14 years we have seen significant growth in our presence across the UK. The legal support team offer a full remit of business services including secretarial, accounts, marketing, HR, business development, office management and administration on a national scale. 

Here's what our Head of Legal Support, Rio Reddy, had to say:

"Legal support has been integral to Douglas Scott's operations, with significant expansion over the last 14 years, now encompassing a vast presence across the UK, serving a majority of national law firms. Our dedicated legal support team has transformed to offer a comprehensive suite of essential business services tailored to our clients' diverse needs.
