Credentials and awards

We are past Signet Accredited Specialist Commercial Litigation solicitors.

The Signet Accreditation programme was 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 was rigorous and tested 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. Signet Accreditation was only granted to a handful of commercial litigators. That we have two of them sets this firm apart from the rest.

Legal 500 have listed us as a leading firm in the commercial litigation category.

We were the Law Awards of Scotland Litigation Firm of the Year in 2015, and were finalists in 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2021.

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