Litigation Firm of the Year - Law Awards of Scotland 2015

The Law Awards of Scotland is an annual celebration of excellence within Scotland's legal profession. The organisers conduct research amongst industry, clients and peers and then invite those firms who meet the standards to submit entries for award. From those firms, a short-list of nominees is produced. This year, the judges included a Queen's Counsel, a Professor of Private Law from the University of Edinburgh, a former Chief Executive of the Law Society of Scotland and the BBC's Principal Solicitor in Scotland: an impressive and discerning panel in anyone's book.

On Thursday, it was announced that we had won the award for Litigation Firm of the Year 2015. We were described as "a firm that stood out for the judges" for the "recognisable personal achievement" of our lawyers.

We'd like to thank the judges, and the clients and peers to whom they spoke, for what is an immense honour.
