Associates shortlisted for Scottish Legal Awards Rising Star of the Year

The finalists for the Scottish Legal Awards have been unveiled and Harper Macleod Associates Amy Mackenzie and Kelly Fraser have both made the shortlist in the Rising Star of the Year category.


Amy and Kelly are on a shortlist of five, alongside lawyers from Shepherd and Wedderburn, MBM Commercial and Watermans Legal.

This year's Awards, supported by the Times newspaper, will be held on 21 March at the Hilton. The organisers said they had received the highest number of entries in the competition’s 16-year history.

We're delighted that Amy and Kelly  have taken deserved places on the final list & we wish them both the very best of luck on the night.

Two special awards which are not open for entry but decided at the discretion of the panel, will also be presented and these are a Lifetime Achievement Award sponsored by The Times and Managing Partner of the Year sponsored by Scott + Co.

Shonaig Macpherson, chair of the judging panel, said: “Finalists should feel very proud that not only have they performed at the top of their game in the last year, but they impressed the judges with their thoughtful and very detailed submissions. Congratulations to everyone and we look forward to celebrating the many achievements in Scottish law.”
