Gillespie Macandrew LLP finalists for Legal Advisor of the Year 2017

August 6, 2017

Gillespie Macandrew LLP, members for Scotland, are delighted to report they have been shortlisted for ‘Legal Adviser of the Year 2017’ in the annual Deals & Dealmakers Awards.  The judges shortlisted Gillespie Macandrew’s 25 strong Energy Land & Infrastructure team and two of Scotland’s largest law firms from multiple applications.  Our involvement in three of the UK’s largest M&A and energy deals and projects in the past year ranging in value from £330m to £3.5bn and our significant financial performance growth was cited by the Judges.  In the judging interview attended by Derek McCulloch, partner, Jamie Reid, Solicitor, and Zoe Fowlie, Trainee, the judges were clear that our application stood out due to our culture, our training and development of junior lawyers through our ‘Academy’ system and the enabling of such junior lawyers to take responsibility for elements of large deals.  The winners will be announced 31st August 2017, but shortlisting in itself is great recognition for the firm.
