Iain MacAskill

Solicitor - Family Law

Career History

I specialise in family law and was previously a partner in another regional firm for over twenty years before joining Neves. 

I have significant experience in all areas of family law including but not limited to divorce,  finances and child related disputes.

I was previously a member of the Law Society Children Panel.

Recent Cases

I regularly draft agreements in relation to:

  • Separation
  • Cohabitation and
  • Pre and Post Nuptial arrangements.

I advise in relation to financial provision for children and, where necessary, will pursue court applications under Schedule 1 of the Children Act 1989.

What makes me human

I have numerous interests out of work not least of which is my family.

I enjoy the theatre but it is costly. I most recently watched The Ferryman. Mary Stuart next which I’m looking forward to.

I don’t read as much as I’d like but A Suitable Boy by Vikram Seth kept me grounded for a while. I’m contemplating War and Peace and may for a while yet.

I enjoy sport and Rugby in particular. I watch Bedford regularly which is a joy and Scotland which, until recently, wasn’t.

I have walked quite a part of the Camino in northern Spain and the Hadrian’s Wall Walk is on my to do list, like so many other things.
