Last night, at The Herald Law Awards of Scotland virtual awards ceremony hosted by Jennifer Reoch, Neilsons were delighted to win ‘High Street Firm of the Year’.
Established in 2004, the The Herald Law Awards of Scotland have focused attention on the excellent quality of work being undertaken by Scotland’s most respected lawyers and law firms. They recognise and reward the best in-house teams, individuals, law firms and suppliers across Scotland. The Herald have described the results last night as a “Who’s Who of the cream of Scotland’s legal talent.”
The awards are judged by an independent judging panel that consist of industry experts.
This year’s Law Awards of Scotland attracted a huge number of entries and it took intensive deliberations from the distinguished panel of judges to draw up a short list and then to whittle this down still further in order to determine the outright winners.
Ken Dalling, President of the Law Society of Scotland, said: “We were delighted to see such strong competition for the awards this year and all of the winners deserve hearty congratulations for their achievements. The awards are a great opportunity to celebrate the breadth of talent in the Scottish legal profession and for us to recognise the innovation that takes place to support improve the practice of law.”
Jenna Spence, Operations Director at Neilsons Solicitors and Estate Agents said:
“We are delighted to win the hotly contested and highly coveted High Street Firm of the Year award.
It is a remarkable achievement for our firm during a remarkable year, especially after winning Residential Property Team of the Year at the Scottish Legal Awards for the second year in a row in recent months.
Neilsons have adapted incredibly well to the challenges posed over the past 20 months and have continuously sought to deliver an excellent first class service to our clients coupled with an ever-evolving range of innovative and useful tools at our disposal, many of which are unique to Neilsons.
We would like to thank the experts in the judging panel for recognising Neilsons as the leading High Street Firm in Scotland. We are so pleased that our team’s achievements – over six branches in East Central Scotland – have been recognised so fully this year, across multiple awards ceremonies.
We have even more exciting plans on the drawing board for 2022 as we strive to deliver even more. Watch this space!”
