Neilsons Solicitors and Estate Agents are delighted to have been confirmed as finalists in four categories at this year’s Scottish Legal Awards which celebrates excellence in the Scottish legal profession:
The independent competition is judged by a panel of experts drawn from across the sector, bringing industry experience and market knowledge to recognise the greatest achievements in the legal industry from across Scotland.
The highly regarded judging panel, chaired by Lorna Jack, met last month to assess entries received from firms and companies across Scotland. Following a robust debate, 35 firms, 13 individuals and 24 teams have been shortlisted in yet another strong year for the independent competition.
Chair of the judging panel, Lorna Jack, commented:
“This year’s entries have demonstrated the strength and resilience of the Scottish legal sector. In a year of extreme challenges, we have seen continued innovation to support clients and examples of excellence across the breadth of the Scottish legal profession.
On behalf of the judging panel, very many congratulations to the finalists and I look forward to celebrating with everyone in September.”
All the winners in this year’s awards will be revealed at the Scottish Legal Awards annual dinner, hosted by Des Clarke which takes place on Thursday 22 September 2022 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in Glasgow.
Jenna Spence, Operations Director at Neilsons Solicitors and Estate Agents, said:
“Neilsons are delighted to be announced as finalists in four categories at this year’s Scottish Legal Awards again. In 2021, Neilsons were also finalists in four categories and won Residential Property Team of the Year for the second time in a row, so we are really pleased to see that our achievements continue to be acknowledged by the industry.
This is a real achievement for us as The Scottish Legal Awards recognise legal and business excellence nationwide and to be finalists in the Firm of the Year, Residential Property Team of the Year, Excellence in Client Care and Rising Star categories is a testament to the strength of Neilsons as a top Solicitor Estate Agency in East Central Scotland and a real acknowledgement of all the hard work of our team over the past year.
Our team continue to work innovatively in the property market industry and have remained pro-active throughout to ensure our clients continue to receive a top-class service year after year. We are delighted that their achievements have been acknowledged alongside our approach to client service, innovation, social media, and property marketing.
We are finalists amongst many other talented firms and individuals in every category, and we wish every nominee the very best of luck in September.”
Aidan Tuohy, Partner at Neilsons Solicitors and Estate Agents, and a finalist in the ‘Rising Star of the Year’ category, further commented: “I am delighted that Neilsons have once again been nominated at this year’s Scottish Legal Awards in four separate categories. This reflects Neilsons’ continued commitment to excellent client service and innovation in our determination to always move ahead of the times in the Solicitor Estate Agency industry. It is a tremendous achievement following another challenging year in the property market for all, against the backdrop of an ever-evolving COVID-19 situation and record levels of demand in the industry following re-assessed property needs on a massive scale.
I am also very pleased in a personal capacity to have been nominated in the ‘Rising Star’ category. Whilst this may be an individual award, I am grateful to my hard-working team at Neilsons. Their endeavour allows me to give focus to the many projects which has resulted in my nomination.
I wish every finalist the very best of luck at the awards in September.”
