Firm lands five nominations at 2013 Scottish Legal Awards

Harper Macleod has been nominated in five categories, including Firm of the Year, in the Scottish Legal Awards 2013.

The other nominations at the award ceremony, which takes place on 28 March, are for Employment Team of the Year, Family Law Team of the Year and Energy Team of the Year, while Douglas Cowan, Partner in our Insurance team, is shortlisted in the Specialist Lawyer of the Year category.

Last year, the firm lifted the Employment Team of the Year (twice), Public Sector Law Team of the Year, Firm of the Year, Insolvency Team of the Year and Managing Team of the Year titles across this event and the Law Awards of Scotland, and we look forward to another successful evening.

The judging panel for the event, which will bring 450 practitioners from across Scotland to the EICC, was chaired by Margo Macdonald MSP and included figures such as Alastair Forsyth QC, Sir Andrew Cubie and Owen Kelly, Chief Executive of Scottish Financial Enterprise.
