ONE of Scotland’s leading legal firms has added three more of the industry’s most coveted titles to its impressive collection.
Since establishing four years ago as a full-service law firm, Gilson Gray has acquired a number of top industry accolades, now celebrating a triple win.
The firm had a double success in the Scottish categories of this year’s ACQ5 Awards, winning Corporate Law Firm of the Year and Restructuring and Debt Recovery Law Firm of the Year. Gilson Gray also took home the award for Full Service Law Firm of the Year in Scotland in the Corporate Excellence Awards.
Glen Gilson, Managing Partner, said: “We’re delighted by the recognition we have received as a firm. We work to be the best in Scotland and it’s fantastic that our whole team is being recognised.
“We pride ourselves on the award-winning service we provide to our clients. We employ and develop talented individuals who are committed to delivering this exceptional level of service.
“It is our collective effort and culture as a business that has secured the awards and our wider commercial success over the last four years.”
The ACQ5 annual awards seek to recognise businesses and individuals who have achieved outstanding corporate success in specific areas of expertise.
Gilson Gray has seen previous success in the ACQ5 Awards, winning in a total of four categories in 2014 and six categories in 2017.
This unprecedented success in the sector has been matched by recent growth, with the Firm becoming one of the largest law firms in the country in a little over four years.
Glen added: “We are not a perfect business. We have a long and exciting journey ahead of us. However, we are committed to making our product the leading example in the sector.”
Bucking industry trends of cutbacks and mergers with its fresh and dynamic approach, Gilson Gray has quadrupled in scale since its launch, with offices across Edinburgh, Glasgow and East Lothian.
It opened in May 2014 as the largest full-service law firm in Scottish legal history, with a portfolio of talent poached from leading firms in Scotland.
With offices in Edinburgh (29 Rutland Square), Glasgow (160 West George Street) and North Berwick (33a Westgate) Gilson Gray offers specialist legal, property and financial services.
