This week has seen the release of both Legal 500 and Chambers Legal Guide, with Stronachs LLP being recognised in both.  The two annual reviews of the UK’s legal market rank the leading firms and lawyers in Scotland.

The Legal 500 report recommends the ‘highly regarded’ firm for its work across Scotland in six practice areas; corporate and commercial, dispute resolution, employment, oil and gas, private client and commercial real estate; with every partner working in these service areas being included in the publication. 

In total 16 Partners, 4 Senior Associates and 2 Consultants received individual commendations in the latest edition of The Legal 500 United Kingdom. 

Stronachs’ oil & gas team and the corporate/M&A department are ranked in Chambers & Partners; with partners Neil Forbes and James Downie and consultant David Rennie being singled out for individual commendation in addition to partner, Eric Gilligan, of the employment division.  

Stronachs’ managing partner, Neil Forbes, said: “We are very proud to see so many members of our team recognised in this way. In addition, our corporate & commercial and dispute resolution teams have both moved up the rankings.  It is also very pleasing to see that we are being ranked alongside or ahead of some of the larger national/international firms.  This recognition reflects the quality of advice our clients receive.”

Recommended professionals are: corporate and commercial partners Malcolm Donald, Neil Forbes, Ross Gardner and Ross Linn and consultant David Rennie. From the dispute resolution team partners Colin Sandilands and Robert McDiarmid are recommended.

Employment partners Anya Duncan, David Chalmers and Eric Gilligan are once again recommended with private client partner, Jaclyn Russell, consultant George Stevenson and senior associate Magnus Mackay also highlighted.
