Based in Glasgow, Curle Stewart is a niche corporate, commercial and commercial property firm made up of directors with significant “big firm” experience, but operating in the structure of a smaller, dedicated-practice unit. As a result, the service offered by Curle Stewart is truly partner-led, with all directors maintaining individual contact with all clients, and matters and direct control of all work carried on in their names. This has led to the firm rapidly amassing a client roster that belies the size of the firm.

All of the directors have experience of dealing with SIPP and SSAS transactions in both corporate and real estate spheres, as well as handling litigation for our SIPP and SSAS clients, as the need arises. Curle Stewart pride themselves on turning round even the most complex transactions with speed and accuracy, and have clear communication at the top of their client care priority list.

The Curle Stewart SIPP team comprise Graham Richmond and Philip Curle on the property side, with Elspeth Curle and Mandy Quinn leading the corporate and litigation aspects.
