Brodies confirmed as the biggest law firm in Scotland

Brodies confirmed as the biggest law firm in Scotland in new league table

Brodies LLP has topped the table of the biggest law firms in Scotland ranked according to the number of partners and fee-earners north of the Border.

Brodies is ranked first with 318 fee-earners, including 75 partners. Dundas & Wilson is in second place with 241 and Pinsent Masons, the London-based law firm which merged recently with McGrigors, is in third place with more than 230.

The figures, published in CA Magazine's annual law review, confirm that Brodies, which has offices in Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Brussels, continues to offer the country's largest legal resource to clients across almost every sector of the Scottish economy.

The firm's growth is the result of sustained investment in key practice areas to ensure the delivery to clients of legal services of the very highest quality. Brodies has more practice areas ranked top or second tier by the leading independent legal directories than any other firm in Scotland and was ranked the top firm in Scotland for the quality of legal advice by corporate clients in the Legal Week Client Satisfaction Report 2011.

Bill Drummond, Managing Partner of Brodies, said: "We are pleased, once again, to top CA Magazine's table as the biggest law firm in Scotland. However, size is only important if you are able to demonstrate that your geographic spread and the range of expertise that you offer is of clear benefit to clients - and this is what we have always set out to do.

"Our approach at Brodies is growing a law firm for the long term through a carefully considered strategy of gradual evolution and expansion that is 100% focused on clients and striving to offer them legal services of the very highest quality.

"This is underscored by the opening of our Aberdeen office just over a year ago, bringing our full range of services to clients (existing and new) in the north east, and the launch of our Brussels office in response to both policy direction and demand from clients for advice on EU regulation, competition and public law from Scottish lawyers who are directly involved in the work of the EU institutions."
