Credentials and awards

We are Signet Accredited Specialist Commercial Litigation solicitors.

The Signet Accreditation programme is run under the auspices of The Society of Writers to Her Majesty's Signet, which forms part of Scotland's College of Justice.  Founded in 1594, the Society is one of the world's oldest independent professional bodies.

Assessment for Signet Accreditation is rigorous and tests the key areas of a lawyer's expertise:

  • technical knowledge and skill in the practice area
  • client-focused knowledge and skills and understanding of the business sector
  • practice management and awareness
  • ethical standards

Specialist Accreditation marks a firm out. It differentiates it from its peers. It provides independent, authoritative evidence of key skills and a commitment to the highest standards of service. Accreditation has been granted to only a handful of commercial litigators. That we have two of them sets this firm apart from the rest.

We are listed by Legal 500 as a leading firm in the commercial litigation category.

We were the Law Awards of Scotland Litigation Firm of the Year in 2015, having been finalists in 2012, 2013 and 2014.

We were Scottish Legal Awards Litigation Team of the Year finalists in 2011 and 2012.
