Posted: 21st January 2019

Blackadders are delighted to have been shortlisted for three categories in the Scottish Legal Awards 2019. 
– Commercial Property Team of the Year
– Employment Team of the Year
– Legal Technology Award

Partner Emma Gray, Head of Commercial Property, said that “It’s an honour and a privilege to be shortlisted for the Commercial Property Team of the Year Award. Our aim has always been to deliver clients with a first class service, we are very proud of the successful growth of our team and its current place in the market.”

The Employment Team, headed up by Partner Simon Allison, are nominated for both the Employment Team of the Year Award and the Legal Technology Award. They have previously won the Employment Team of the Year Award (at the 2016 Scottish Legal Awards) and last year Simon won the coveted Lawyer of the Year Award. Simon said “We are absolutely delighted to be shortlisted for two awards. The team has put in a lot of work not only with clients but also in developing our podcasts, blogs, videos and social media presence, so it is great to be recognised as a finalist for the Legal Technology Award. It is recognition of both the quality content and the hard work the team has put in over the past twelve months.”

The awards ceremony will take place on Thursday 21 March.
