Burness Paull has won the prestigious Legal Business National/Regional Law Firm of the Year award competing with some of the strongest competitors in the UK legal market.
The award recognises the successful implementation of its strategy and leading position in Scotland.
Commenting after receiving the Legal Business award on behalf of the firm in front of 1100 guests at the Grosvenor Hotel in Park Lane last night, chairman Philip Rodney said:
"This is an amazing accolade.
Our aim was uncompromising - to be recognised in the UK and internationally as the top commercial law firm, for anyone doing business in Scotland. Capturing some of the biggest transactions in the Scottish market and attracting elite clients is testimony to our success.
In particular it recognises our connection with our clients. Our sector experience is authentic - a number of our partners have worked in-house and we place great importance in placing our lawyers on client secondment. So we know what keeps our clients awake at night. That has allowed us to define a service that is not inert but that supports their objectives in a fast moving world.
The award reflects the commitment of every single member of the Burness Paull team of whom I am immensely proud. The combination of our energy and ambition means that we won't stand still."
