The Scottish legal market is one of the UK’s most vibrant, with the country’s proud domestic stalwarts competing with national and international players for dominance across key sectors, from energy to financial services, and corporate to private client.
The Legal 500 has long taken a keen interest in this dynamic market, tracking the shifting fortunes of the leading firms as mergers and economic tailwinds have reshaped the legal landscape, and this year we are taking our engagement to new heights with the launch of our first-ever legal awards in Scotland
These awards will recognise the lawyers, law firms and in-house legal departments setting the pace north of the border, celebrating their achievements over the last 18 months and broadcasting this success to a global audience
The shortlists and winners have been determined based on The Legal 500’s market-leading independent research for the annual UK Solicitors guide. Winners will be selected by a judging team spearheaded by The Legal 500 UK research manager Ben Wheway, editor Georgina Stanley, and head of in-house research Joe Boswell, and including the efforts of all of the in-house and freelance researchers whose in-depth knowledge and understanding went into the authoritative UK practice rankings.
