Mair Matheson has been providing legal services based in Newmilns, Ayrshire for decades with clients throughout Scotland.


The firm is the successor to J&G Mair, Solicitors which was one of the institutions of the Irvine Valley from the early 1950s until 1990.


We moved to our present premises which were purpose built for us as part of the Newmilns Townscape Heritage Initiative in November 2004.

We provide a service that combines the best of both worlds with an “old fashioned” element of personal attention born out of the history of the firm as a traditional Scottish country practice and the essential modernity in knowledge base, technology and efficiency which our clients require today.
