About Grigor & Young LLP

Established over 185 years ago, we are the largest firm of Solicitors and Estate Agents – based in Elgin and Forres – serving the population of Moray.

As a firm we have several Specialists in Agricultural Law, Licensing, Family Law, Reparation Claims (Accidents and Injuries), and have many years experience in nearly every other field of Law.

The Forres branch of Grigor & Young LLP was formerly the long-established firm, Mackenzie & Grant. The business was acquired by Grigor & Young in 2002 and continued to trade under the Mackenzie & Grant name until 2012, when it changed to Grigor & Young.

From 01 April 2018, Grigor & Young is a Limited Liability Partnership (LLP).

We are here to help

Our offices are closed but we are still open and here to help.


In accordance with Government guidelines, and to ensure the health and well-being of our
Staff and the wider community, our offices in Elgin and Forres are now closed to the public
until further notice.


However, we are still here to help you. We have a very small, core team remaining at each
office and the bulk of our legal and property teams are working remotely and are available to
assist you by way of telephone, video call or email.


Our main office number (01343 544077) is manned from 9am – 5pm, Monday to Thursday
and 9am – 4pm on Fridays. Please call and you will be passed to the member of our team
dealing with your business. If you are a new client requiring assistance, then you will be
passed to someone who will be able to help.


Those members of our team who are working remotely remain contactable on their direct
dial numbers and email. If the person who was dealing with your business is not currently
working then your call or email is being diverted to the person progressing matters for you.


This is a difficult time for everyone. We want to do all that we can to help you continue with
any ongoing business, or simply help and advise you if you have concerns. These are
extraordinary times and we totally understand that you may have legal questions or
concerns. Please feel free to call for a chat and we will do all we can to assist.


If we all take good care of ourselves, our families, our friends and our neighbours, we are
sure that together we will come through this difficult time.
