UK top 50 and leading Scottish law firm Brodies LLP has received double honours at the Scottish Business Insider Deals and Dealmakers awards 2023. The firm was named legal advisor of the year and received the award for diversity and inclusion.
The honours were presented last night (24 August 2023) at a prestigious ceremony at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Glasgow. Now in its 25th year, the Deals and Dealmakers awards acknowledge and reward excellence in corporate financial transactions.
Brodies was recognised for its exceptional performance and reputation for high quality legal services and delivering exceptional value to clients that "lead the way in Scottish dealmaking". In relation to diversity and inclusion – the first time this category has been included in the Deals and Dealmakers awards – the firm was commended for fostering an empowering work culture, where colleagues are valued and diversity is celebrated.
Brodies managing partner, Nick Scott, said: "Reflecting on the awards we have received, I must thank our clients for continuing to trust us with their instructions. We take confidence from their ambition, and are encouraged that many clients have been able to see opportunity and act on that. We look forward to continuing to work with, and support, them on their deals and transactions.
"To be recognised in the inclusion and diversity category is testament to the commitment of all our colleagues to foster an inclusive workplace, increase the diversity of our workforce and create safe places for people with difference. We will continue to shape our plans and policies with high regard to the areas of diversity that matter to them."
