Julie Harris, a partner with Allan McDougall Solicitors, commented: “We’re extremely grateful to be recognised in these prestigious awards. Many thanks and congratulations to everyone within the firm for their unstinting dedication to providing continuously outstanding service to our clients and achieving great results for them.
Sincere thanks also to our three wonderful corporate social responsibility (CSR) partners in the last few years: Scottish Disability Sport, Holy Rood High School, and the Lawscot Foundation. CSR strikes at the heart of everything we are about as a firm, so this award is testament to both our ethos and the success of our collaborative initiatives to help support young people to learn and achieve.”
Commenting on the Litigation Team of the Year award, won by the firm’s personal injury team, the judges “agreed that Allan McDougall Solicitors displayed very interesting examples of cases they are involved in, and it's clear that the firm has a strong sense of purpose with a strong social and community initiative. They position themselves as “approachable experts” that clients trust and feel comfortable with. A well-established firm with a particularly strong relationship with trade unions, they demonstrated impressive revenue growth as well as outstanding client results.”
Remarking on the Corporate Social Responsibility Award, the judging panel “particularly liked Allan McDougall Solicitors’ deep relationships formed with the firm's three main CSR partners and the excellent feedback from the organisations. They demonstrated a very clear and well-expressed strategy. It is evident from the testimonials that the CSR projects have not only had a positive impact on the organisations and individuals they support, but also on those who participate from within the firm.”
Our family law team was also a finalist for the Family and Child Law Team of the Year award, one of the most keenly contested categories. Julie Harris added: “Our fantastic family law team has punched well above its weight this year, handling many, often complex, cases. They never fail to deliver, thinking creatively when needed, and achieving the best possible outcome for clients.”
