SCOTTISH law firm Shepherd and Wedderburn has been named Regional/Offshore firm of the year in the Legal Business Awards.
The company, which has an office in Aberdeen’s Rubislaw Terrace, was recognised for its evidence of effective leadership, financial performance and increased market share.
The judges’ decision was informed by research carried out by Legal Business, Legal 500 and independent legal experts into the quality of services, sustained growth and new business wins.
Commenting on Shepherd and Wedderburn’s performance, the judging panel, commented: “Shepherd and Wedderburn’s five-year revenue and profit growth of 51% and 61% respectively is striking.
“The firm is much more than an efficient client-service machine, it is also a thought leader and a ground-breaker in its own community.”
Andrew Blain, Shepherd and Wedderburn’s managing partner, said: “I would like to congratulate the other firms shortlisted in this category, thank our clients for continuing to put their trust in us, and say how proud I am of my colleagues across the business for the remarkable resilience, commitment and adaptability they have shown, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic.”
