About Us

BBM is a boutique law practice with offices in Edinburgh and Wick, Caithness. BBM was founded in 2010 with the goal of “doing law better”. To make that goal a reality, BBM have focussed on building better relationships both externally and internally: with clients, competitors, courts, regulators and the BBM team.

As our choice of locations suggests, our aim is to marry the best of both worlds: the local knowledge and traditional relationship values of a progressive, local practice of solicitors with the dynamism and expertise of a national leader in our specialist areas of practice. BBM has grown organically since formation. A highly skilled, close knit team is now in place, making the firm well positioned to further its excellent reputation in the years to come.

With key members of the team based in Caithness and the Highlands, BBM’s roots are just as strong in rural Scotland as they are in Edinburgh.  This gives us a rare perspective on the needs of clients across a whole range of sectors and with a whole host of legal requirements. In this sense we are a truly Scottish practice – equally at home in the farming communities of the Highlands as we are in Edinburgh’s Court of Session where we regularly act on behalf of individual clients, other law firms and corporate and private sector clients big and small.

As you can see from our extensive A-Z of our legal services we have a series of established niches in the following areas:

Insolvency and Corporate Debt Recovery, Litigation (for individuals and business) and Corporate Transactional and Advisory work.

In addition we also boast expertise in:

Agricultural LawPersonal and Commercial Advice for Business People and IndividualsEmployment Law, Intellectual Property and Information Technology Law, Leases, Tenancies, Purchase and Sale of Commercial Property and Business Start-ups.

Eric Baijal says: “When we set up BBM in 2010 our aims were two-fold. Firstly, we wanted to establish a niche as a dynamic specialist on the national stage with an offering based on timely, cost-effective and commercial advice for clients facing an array of complex legal challenges. In doing so, we wanted to help shift the perception of legal advice as a necessary evil, promoting it instead as a service where our contribution actively improve clients’ quality of work and life, saving and indeed making them money in some cases.”

He says: “Our second objective was to continue to develop a quality legal practice here in the Far North and that is something we feel passionate about. We are uniquely placed to assist local communities and businesses, with a team of experienced and commercial operators who understand life here. We appreciate the support of those we have got to know in the last ten years and we are looking forward to working with many others in the years ahead.”
