Andrew Rigby and I attended a reception on Wednesday night to celebrate, along with all the with other nominees, Andrew’s short-listing in the specialist of the year category at this year’s Scott + Co Scottish Legal Awards.
The awards, winners of which will be announced on 19 March, promote excellence in Scotland’s legal profession, recognising leading firms and individuals across a number of categories. The judging panel is chaired by Margo MacDonald MSP and comprises independent experts from business, law and politics.
The short-listing reinforces Andrew’s status as a key player in the outsourcing field. As part of his work for Brodies’ Technology, Information and Outsourcing Group, Andrew has been instrumental in continuing to promote Scotland as an Outsourcing Hub – playing a pivotal role in trade visits to India last year to develop this initiative. Furthermore, his contribution to the outsourcing industry was formally recognised most recently in October 2009, when he was named ‘Outsourcing Professional of the Year’ at the National Outsourcing Association (NOA) Awards in London. Brodies was the only Scottish law firm short-listed at the awards.
Good luck for the 19th!
