Scottish Legal Awards 2019


Hot on the heels of our gaining Commended status at the Law Awards of Scotland ceremony in Glasgow in November, the firm has just been named as one of the six finalists in the Litigation Team of the Year section of the Scottish Legal Awards 2019.

The Scottish Legal Awards were founded in 2003 and aim to recognise excellence in Scottish law, bringing together industry experience and market knowledge to recognise the greatest achievements in the legal industry across Scotland. The independent competition is judged by a panel of experts drawn from across the sector, including senior solicitors and advocates, industry chiefs and current and past officers from the Law Society and civil service. The 2019 competition attracted a record high volume of entries and number of competing firms and this year's finalists were selected by the judging panel following assessment of the highest number of entries in the competition’s 16-year history.

We're delighted to be among them.
