A Scottish legal firm has four extra reasons to celebrate its upcoming first anniversary, after picking up a quartet of honours.

Significant market newcomer Gilson Gray scooped both the ‘Leading Customer Service Law Firm of the Year’ and ‘Full Service Law Firm’ at the prestigious Scottish ACQ Law Awards 2014/15.

In addition, individual awards went to Glen Gilson, as Managing Partner of the Year and Steven Jansch in the ‘Scottish Insolvency Lawyer of the Year’ category.

Since bursting on to the law scene in May 2014 as the biggest full service firm to open in Scotland in more than 100 years, Gilson Gray has been cherry-picking talent from across the legal sectors. With offices in Edinburgh and Glasgow, it offers specialist legal, property and financial services.

It has been able to develop a significant market presence and has recently acquired two financial advisory businesses, taking assets under management to a little short of £100million.

Managing Partner Glen Gilson said: “These awards serve to highlight our developing market presence and reaffirms our strategic decision to launch as a large full service firm and to concentrate predominantly on client service.

“It also demonstrates the firm’s commitment to become one of the leading law firms in the country. We offer clients a more cost effective and high quality option. We also strive to be the best law firm to work at in Scotland.

“Our strategy has been to drive growth by attracting the best talent in their respective fields, and it is very rewarding to be recognised with these individual and team awards. Steven Jansch is a prime example of the calibre of personnel we offer at Gilson Gray and is representative of our commitment to dedicated expertise in all of our fields of operation.”

The ACQ award winners are chosen by the e-zines readers, with a total of 19,147 received votes – further emphasizing the achievement of the Gilson Gray team who were successful in all four categories in which it was nominated.

Jake Robson, editor of ACQ Magazine said: “Exceptional individuals, teams and firms across the marketplace represent the very best in their field from around the world and truly deserve the accolade of being an ACQ Award winner.”

Glen added: “From day one, we believed discerning corporate, commercial and private clients wanted the option of a major new full service firm that offered high quality legal, financial and property services which are neither impersonal nor impenetrable.

“To have achieved the growth we have within our first year - and now be recognised by our peers with the four award wins - is very humbling. We are very grateful for the support of our clients and the wider Scottish business community.”
