Assisting the Senior and Managing Partners, Graham + Sibbald has an additional 25 Partners, 23 Associates and 2 Consultants, with a total complement of over 200 employees and 15 offices throughout the UK, which creates a unique blend of local experience, combined with national expertise.

We still trade as a traditional Partnership. We are not a limited liability Partnership, nor a Limited Company. We consider that trading as a traditional Partnership sends out the right message to our clients, large and small, of our commitment to providing safe, reliable and trusted property advice, the core to our business in Scotland.

“Graham + Sibbald have been clients of Howden since 2004. Our role, as their Professional Indemnity Insurance (PII) adviser, offers a unique insight into the partnership and their culture. We have been continually impressed with their determination to remain sector specialists and provide frank, honest, and informed advice and guidance to their clients. These are characteristics that give rise to an enviable PI record and a level of cover that few in the property sector can match.”

Lance Rigby, Executive Director,
Howden Windsor, Howden Insurance Brokers LTD

Graham + Sibbald, established Dundee 1959
Graham + Sibbald’s roots lie in Dundee, Scotland. In February 1959, Sandy Graham, formerly of the District Valuer's Department, went into partnership with Greig Sibbald, principal of John G. Sibbald & Son Property Agents, to establish what was then the only solely Valuation based practice in the City.

Mr Graham + Mr Sibbald

In 1964, Graham + Sibbald expanded in terms of client base, with the opening of offices in Kirkcaldy, Stirling and Glasgow. The firm continued to grow with further offices across Scotland being opened in Paisley, Inverness, Falkirk and Edinburgh. In the following years offices have been established in Perth, Hamilton and Kilmarnock.


In more recent years, Graham + Sibbald have also set foot in England where Weybridge office is strategically located to serve the Petroleum Oil Companies located nearby, through our specialist Petroleum + Roadside Division.


The property world has changed significantly since Graham + Sibbald first set up an office in Dundee in 1959.


But what hasn’t changed is our belief in the quality and independence of our advice and our investment and trust in our people - the best advice from the best people, with invaluable local knowledge, and the support of a national network of experts for every aspect of every project.
