Allan McDougall Solicitors has been shortlisted twice in the Scottish Legal Awards 2021, in both the Litigation Team of the Year and Excellence in Client Care award categories.
Julie Harris, partner and head of personal injury at Allan McDougall Solicitors, said: “We’re absolutely thrilled to be recognised alongside the best in the Scottish legal sector. This has been a year like no other for businesses and individuals alike. But against the background of the pandemic, our three specialist litigation teams (personal injury, family and employment law) have exemplified innovation, strength and resilience. Their hard work and commitment continue to generate glowing testimonials from our clients on a daily basis, as well as plaudits from those with whom we work across the industry. So, a huge well done to everyone in the firm. We are very proud of you.
Many thanks also to our clients across Scotland, as well as all the QCs, advocates, medical experts and business support providers with whom we work on our clients’ behalf, and the other law firms whose clients we assist via our Injury Compensation Alliance. A special mention and much gratitude also to Unite and Usdaw, for whom we are Scottish panel solicitors.”
Shonaig Macpherson, chair of the judging panel, commented: “This year, and more than ever, the entries for the Scottish Legal Awards have highlighted the strength and resilience of our legal sector. Despite challenges from the global pandemic, entrants have provided us with numerous examples of creativity, innovation and inspirational support to both clients and staff throughout the pandemic.
On behalf of the judging panel, I offer our heartfelt congratulations to the finalists and look forward to recognising their many achievements in September.”
The winners will be revealed at an awards ceremony on 23 September 2021 in Glasgow.
