Ewan Sheriff

Ewan Sherriff is a lawyer based in Dubai, previously for many years in the UK. He allows his private clients to access a variety of documents and files on his client website.

Professional Life
Ewan Sheriff began his traineeship with Alex Morison & Co in September 1990 until the end of August 1992. He had 4 seats during his two years , Wills Trusts and Executries, Residential Conveyancing, Litigation and Commercial Property. It was the latter that took his fancy, long having held an interest in that area Mr Sheriff left for Glasgow to join Semple Fraser Haniford DiCiacca where he worked until May 1993 before being attracted back to Edinburgh by Drew Wallace and David Cockburn of Archibald Campbell & Harley.

He had 8 very happy and rewarding years there carrying out a whole variety of work, commencing with retail tenant leasing for national retailers, taking stores for them in all major new shopping centre developments. Equally, his time at ACH occurred during the retail park boom and in several parks we negotiated to take more than 80% of the available space for their tenant clients. Ewan's work then moved into the investment and development side and when leaving ACH had created a sound client following.

Ewan Sherriff continued his career at Shepherd and Wedderburn between 2001 and 2004 with increasing exposure in the investment and development fields , increasing client following greatly before leaving to head up Property at Dickson Minto in 2004. Whilst there they created one of the best known and high profile real estate teams in the UK carrying out fantastic high profile transactions, quadrupling turnover and team size within 3 years before the market change.

Family Life
Ewan married Kirstin on 6 July 2002 at Cromlix House in Dunblane and took their honeymoon in the south of Spain, travelling a fair bit before ending up in the beautiful city of Seville. Their first child, Niamh was born on 27 February 2004 and they have also been blessed with Ben and Finn who were born respectively on 16 August 2005 and 16 April 2008.
Having long held an interest in the Middle East, travelled there and transacted there the family decided to relocate there at the beginning of 2009, looking for a fresh challenge and a better way of life. The Sherriff family finally moved to Dubai in April 2010 and have never looked back.

Surname confusion
There has been widespread confusion over the spelling of Ewan's surname on the internet, with many publications spelling it Sheriff' when in fact the correct spelling is Sherriff'. This has led to friends and clients unable to find websites operated by Ewan Sherriff and his family.
