Shorthand Writer in Glasgow

Serving the whole of Scotland







Experienced & Accurate

I am Ian Gilkison, and I am a self-employed shorthand writer in Glasgow, recording proceedings for civil courts and official meetings. I predominantly work with the Scottish Civil Courts to record proceedings in shorthand and digitally if necessary, where these transcripts can be kept for possible appeal purposes or any other review. I also record private meetings and local authority meetings on request. If you need a shorthand writer in Glasgow or throughout Scotland for any recording work, you can rely on me for my accuracy, experience and reliability.
