Our People Ainsley MacLaren


Apart from her wider tax knowledge, Ainsley MacLaren is my go-to person in Stamp Duties and Land and Buildings Transaction Tax.


Ainsley regularly provides stand-alone advice to our clients across a range of taxes, including VAT and stamp duty land tax/land and buildings transaction tax, and also advises on share schemes and cash-based incentives. She is equally comfortable working with clients' own tax advisers to ensure that her colleagues implement the tax advice you have received correctly.

Ainsley sits on the Tax Committees of both the Law Society of Scotland and the Scottish Property Federation.

Ainsley is ranked for Tax in the 2023 edition of Chambers UK Guide to the Legal Profession.
