    Thorntons' roots can be traced back to 1857. Over the generations, Thorntons has grown significantly and we now have offices across Scotland in Dundee, Edinburgh, Fife, Perth and Angus.


    As well as providing high quality advice and exceptional client care, we play an active role in supporting the communities we serve. Either by providing rewarding careers or giving something back through our support of social causes and charitites.

    We don't do this because we have to; we do it because it's the right thing to do.

    Estate Agency
    image cannot be displayed

    We have been helping Dundee, Fife, Angus and Perthshire families with their property needs for generations. Throughout our long history and through ever-changing property markets, we have always focussed on what our clients need, and delivered services built round them. Recently we have expanded our estate agency operation into the Edinburgh Area.

    From the 1960s onwards, Thorntons grew to become the largest Scottish-based solicitor estate agency in our operating area. In the 1980s, we became the first local solicitor estate agent to open the now-familiar high street property shop. A significant game-changing merger in 1990 transformed the estate agency landscape locally and the firm expanded, opening bustling property shops throughout Dundee and Angus. These property shops gave buyers and sellers their first experience of the one-stop shop' approach by providing a full range of complementary estate agency and legal services.

    Building on these solid foundations the firm continued to grow and develop our offering for clients. In the early 1990s we expanded into Perthshire. Recent expansion has been into Fife in 2014 with mergers with the successful firms Murray Donald and Steel Eldridge Stewart. This was followed up with expansion into Montrose merging with Watts in 2015, and with Clarkson Hamilton in Kirkcaldy in 2016. Thorntons have an established legal office in Edinburgh and in Summer 2016 we expanded our services when we launched our new Estate Agency and conveyancing Edinburgh operations. In September 2017 we acquired Pagan Osborne who had offices in Edinburgh, St Andrews, Cupar and Anstruther. This acquisition cemented our place as the largest Estate Agent within Fife.

    A number of key staff in our property team have been involved in the evolution of this highly successful operation over recent years. They have witnessed the expansion of the firm's market share in both existing and new build property sales, particularly evident in the boom years from 2004 to 2008. During that period the residential property market provided tremendous opportunities for the firm to harness its strengths and invest for the future.

    During the less buoyant years which followed, we continued to move forward and prepare for the resurgence of activity in the property market. Even when the market was at its toughest, we continued to invest in our people and systems to maintain our position and deliver the best service for sellers and buyers.

    The last 25 years have seen tremendous changes in market demands, with new technology and online opportunities opening up innovative ways for us to deliver services to clients. As well as extending our online client communication we have also invested strongly to provide late night and weekend openings. This ensures buyers and sellers can speak to someone in our branches who will be able to help - at a time that suits them.

    Our strong involvement with the local solicitors' property centres continues and forms an important part of our offering. We have also embraced newer nation-wide online platforms to give sellers the widest choice possible.

    We continually look to provide our services in an innovative and flexible way - always with the emphasis on what our clients need. And we look forward to building on our past as we continue to deliver top quality estate agency and property services across Edinburgh, Dundee, Fife, Angus and Perthshire into the future.

  • service

    Whether it's a personal matter or a business issue, at some point in your life you'll need to call upon expert legal advice. From the joy of buying a new home to the difficulties of a marriage breakdown; from corporate finance advice to selling a business, there are all sorts of circumstances - good and bad - where you'll need our help.

    As one of Scotland's most respected full service legal and property firms, we're well equipped to provide you with all the expert legal advice you may need.

    We go to great lengths to understand your specific requirements. We can then draw upon our wide range of services: and deliver a comprehensive solution that's right for you.


    We do awesome

    There's nothing like the feeling of securing your dream home. A place you can call your own - whether you are a first time buyer or you're moving up the property ladder.

    At Thorntons we have a range of services that cover all aspects of buying and selling a property. From making that all important offer to handing you your keys, our dedicated property teams make the process as stress free and seamless as we can. We work closely with our estate agency colleagues to offer a comprehensive property service all under one roof.

    We do tears

    There are many legal issues we all encounter in our lives. But it's those where children are involved that have the greatest impact on us as parents or grandparents. Child custody issues, such as residency and contact, fostering and surrogacy, matters at school; they all require a great deal of sensitivity.

    At Thorntons Family Law, we're able to provide expert legal advice that's right for your circumstances: advice that is equally supportive for both parents and children.

    We do conflict

    Sometimes life doesn't turn out how we planned it. In some cases of separation, couples remain on good terms and any issues can be sorted without the need of a solicitor. Whereas in some cases, communication may have broken down altogether.

    At Thorntons Family Law we are specially trained in negotiating under a variety of dispute situations. Our tried and tested ways of resolving problems will hopefully find a solution that is right for both you, and your partner.

    We do mud

    The rural sector is an ever-changing landscape that brings its own unique challenges and opportunities. Whether it's managing large estates for future generations, or diversifying land use, specialist legal expertise is crucial in such matters.

    At Thorntons, we're not afraid to get our hands dirty and get stuck into whatever issue you may need us for. However, it's not only important we understand the law that affects the rural industry; it's important we understand the industry itself.

    We do pain

    Being in a road traffic accident or an accident at work is always something you think happens to someone else. Unfortunately, one day that someone else may be you. An unexpected collision or incident in the workplace can have a short and long term affect on your finances.

    Our specialist team of Personal Injury Lawyers can guide you through all aspects of making a compensation claim for any injury sustained; as well as for other losses such as earnings, private medical and out of pocket, we offer a No Win, No Fee arrangement for claims.

    We do brave

    Whether your business is in the emerging technology and innovation sector or is experiencing high growth, no successful business stays still. As your business expands or changes, its commercial priorities may require you to reorganise your workforce arrangements.

    Developing and growing a business takes courage. With potentially big changes afoot, our Business Law team can help you make those brave decisions: from advising at start up stage to helping you manage employees through a reorganisation of your business.

    We do tough

    Businesses come in all shapes and sizes; in different sectors, both private and public. One thing they all have in common, is that the people running those businesses need to make the right decisions at the right time.

    At Thorntons our clear and commercially focussed advice helps takes business further. Our expert lawyers will give you the complete legal picture and help you see the way ahead. Whether it's managing your estates or your people, we can advise you on what's right for you.

    We do futures

    Life is full of unexpected twists and turns. Being prepared for whatever life may throw at you not only gives you peace of mind, but offers reassurance to others that should anything untoward happen, everything will be taken care of.

    Our Private Client team can help you plan for and deal with life's changes. From planning for the future, putting your affairs in order or dealing with an unexpected change in circumstances, we do all we can to help you deal with a family bereavement.

    We do dreams

    Most people call them 'life moments'. Those pivotal times when something extraordinary happens, when dreams come true.

    At Thorntons, we like to help make those dreams become a reality. From helping to launch a start up, landing new business premises, or securing extra investment, we can provide all the support and legal advice that's right for you and your business; to help it grow and prosper.

Testimonials from Sellers

  • Seller Testimonial

    Everybody made it easy for us from start to finish
    I wanted to write and thank you on behalf of my family for the excellent work you and your team did to sell my mother's house. Everybody made it very easy for us from start to finish. We did get thrown a bit with the offers subject to sale of the buyer's house, as we had not met this in Scotland before, and I did have visions of it turning into the English chain! Anyway all is done in good time and you have achieved a really good price which we are delighted with. Very many thanks to you, Daniel, Hannah and those behind the scenes who have helped make this happen.
  • Seller Testimonial

    excellent service
    Thorntons provided an excellent service both on the selling of our house and on the purchase of our new house. All members of staff were courteous and considerate at all times.
  • Seller Testimonial

    delivered far in excess of my expectations
    I just wanted to write to say thank you for all your help and assistance in our sale of the above property. From start to finish you have all been extremely customer focused, friendly, yet professional in your attitude and have made the process very easy and comfortable for both myself and Colleen. From the quick set up, initial viewings, offers, right through to conclusion, each of you have been excellent and nothing we asked (given that we are 270+ miles away) has been too much trouble. I must admit that when I looked at Thorntons for selling my property I wasn't sure what I'd get in terms of service and value for money, but you have all delivered far in excess of my expectations. I most certainly would now recommend Thorntons to my friends for this service. It's just a pity I cant use you for my new house purchase in England! You will be a hard act to follow.
