About Miller Gerrard

The firm was established in the mid-19th century and has provided legal services to the towns of Blairgowrie, Coupar Angus and Alyth and the rural hinterland over many generations. The practise has been incorporated under the name of Miller Gerrard Limited, and continues to operate under the name Miller Gerrard.

The Directors of the Company are brothers David M. Hart, who joined the firm in 2011, and Richard G. Hartley-Zels, who joined in 2015. They are the sons of John M. Hart, who was with the firm from 1975 until his retiral in 2022. Since 1999 the firm has operated from its location in the High Street at the former office of the town’s photographer; hence the address ‘The Studio’. The office also houses our estate agency practice. We provide a comprehensive range of legal and estate agency services to both individuals and businesses.

Our team

David and Richard are supported by Alison Powrie, a Legal Executive with over 25 years experience, who joined the team on a part-time basis in 2021. Estate Agency Manager Catriona Mackay joined us in 2022, bringing with her both local knowledge and experience of the housing market. Pauline Whyte, previously our Estate Agency Manager, now works part-time, having taking on the role of Office Manager, supporting both our property department and legal team. Our secretary Deanna Scott has worked here for many years, and as a result has a wealth of knowledge and experience.

In making the choice of which solicitors to appoint, the acid test is past performance.  We are proud to say that much of our new business is based on personal recommendation by existing clients.

Client care is very important to us. We pride ourselves on our accessibility, and always aim to provide clients old and new with friendly, practical and down-to-earth advice.
