Who's Who Legal has once again picked out Brodies LLP as the leading firm in Scotland in its annual awards. The firm was named Scotland Law Firm of the Year 2012, the third occasion that it has gained this recognition.
Who's Who Legal lists only the leading lawyers in each field, based exclusively on the findings of an independent six-month research process that encompasses feedback from private practitioners, clients and other experts in the sector. It is impossible to buy entry into this publication; only lawyers who score most highly according to our independent international research criteria are listed.
Partners from the firm in Scotland received sufficient nominations from their clients and peers to be listed 11 times across nine practice areas in the publication. Lawyers from Brodies LLP were listed more times than those from any other firm in the country.
Editor in chief Callum Campbell said, "The strong performance of so many lawyers from Brodies LLP underlines the depth of expertise the firm can offer across a range of areas, and we are delighted to recognise the firm once again as the leader in Scotland."
Bill Drummond, managing partner of Brodies, said, "We are delighted to have received this accolade, which is based on the opinions of our peers and, most importantly, our clients. This award reflects our commitment to delivering a full range of top tier legal skills to our clients in Scotland, the UK and overseas and the hard work of our lawyers in supporting companies, public sector organisations and individuals by providing the innovative solutions they need during these challenging times.
"Its independent research leads Who's Who Legal to see us as the leading Scottish law firm on quality grounds and I believe ours is both the biggest and the team with the strongest focus on all key sectors of the Scottish economy. We look forward to continuing to build and share our market-leading expertise for the benefit of clients, existing and new, in the years to come."
The awards are based on a number of factors, including general feedback received in the research process, past performance in the research and the overall aggregate number of weighted votes cast in their favour. The winners are formally announced in The International Who's Who of Business Lawyers 2012, a compendium edition of all the individual Who's Who Legal publications, which is released in June and covers 31 practice areas and over 100 countries.
The compendium edition is distributed free of charge to thousands of corporate counsel and private practice lawyers from around the world. The information is also available on www.WhosWhoLegal.com and is updated daily.
Who's Who Legal is official research partner of the International Bar Association and strategic research partner of the ABA Section of International Law. In 2012, Who's Who Legal's parent company Law Business Research was recognised for the second time by The Queen's Award for Enterprise in the area of international trade. These awards are the most prestigious a British company can receive.
