About us, Scott Moncrieff

Lucy Scott-Moncrieff SolicitorWelcome from Lucy Scott-Moncrieff CBE

Welcome to Scott-Moncrieff & Associates.

I co-founded ScoMo, as we affectionately call the Firm, over 30 years ago and today I am proud that the team is bigger and stronger than ever.  We attract lawyers who are recognised leaders in their field and our management and admin structure ensures they can perform at the top of their game.

Not only is our team stronger, the range of services for people and businesses we offer has expanded, with employment and company commercial work being the current growth areas.

With all this progress, one thing has remained constant: ScoMo’s commitment to delivering high quality legal services at an affordable cost.  This underpins our firmly-held ethos and is reflected in our continued pioneering of Legal Aid matters, public law and working for people who require dependable, reliable advice.

Legal Services

Scott-Moncrieff  offers legal advice throughout England and Wales, through face-to-face contact or online, via Skype or by phone. We advise people, companies and other organisations on a full range of legal issues, bringing the full weight of expert teams of specialists to supporting and advising our clients.  


At ScoMo we know that funding is a key issue.  It’s why we maintain our commitment to Legal Aid cases.  For a whole range of legal services the firm endeavours to find an appropriate method of financing the advice and help that you need. This includes working to a strict, agreed budget; on a no win no fee basis; legal expenses insurance; or Legal Aid.

ScoMo never charges clients until the funding arrangement has been agreed and the way forward approved.

And, of course, we offer a free no obligation initial consultation.

Fee Information for Selected Services

Scott-Moncrieff aims to provide high level legal services at an affordable rate.  Every case is unique and legal costs vary depending on the nature and complexity of the matter.  Below are a range of hourly rates for the specific types of work listed.

Please contact us if you would like more information on legal costs for your case.

Quality of Service

Some time ago ScoMo achieved the Lexcel accreditation, which is awarded only to those firms that can demonstrate a genuine and full commitment to the highest practice management standards as overseen and audited annually by the Law Society.

We have stringent quality controls, but if - for any reason - you are unhappy with the service you have received, please let us know.  We’ll work with you to find a way forward.

Thank you for visiting our website.

Yours sincerely
Lucy Scott-Moncrieff, CBE  (Chair)
