We won! ....I have a dream... Never has so much ..... Ich bin ein berliner ...... The exact words of last night’s victory speech are unknown but what is known is that Thompsons are Firm of the Year 2011.
2 new records have been set by Thompsons Scotland in the past 24 hours.
1) We were announced as 'Law Firm of the Year' at the prestigious Scott + Co Scottish Legal Awards 2011. This marks the 3rd top tier award for the firm in a row.
2) There was a record low in terms of Partner attendance across the offices of Thompsons Scotland today after a night of raucous celebration took its toll.
My plasticine head is still buzzing as it sinks in that we are the DX Firm of the Year beating off competition from national 'super-power' firms.
The award follows The Firm Magazine's selection of us recently as their law firm of the year and more recently still, Senior Partner Frank Maguire's naming as Solicitor of the Year 2010.
Our business centres largely around road traffic compensation claims; accident compensation claims; asbestos compensation claims; workplace accident compensation claims - but our commitment to political campaigning on behalf of our clients and trade unions was also recognised by those delivering this prestigious award.
