“This recognises the breadth and depth of dispute resolution work that we have undertaken since the Firm started trading in May 2014 and the major contributions of Alex Garioch, Solicitor Advocate and Partner, and Rosie Walker, Partner, as well as their colleagues has been significant.

“We are also very appreciative of the continued support and instructions we receive from our clients.”
