Scotland’s top legal eagles have been unveiled in an annual review of UK law firms and the people who work for them.
The latest edition of the Legal 500 says Scots firms benefited from a “particularly buoyant” commercial property market during 2015, despite economic woes in Aberdeen.
Corporate and commercial transactional activity was “vibrant” across the country, it adds.
But uncertainty over Brexit and whether it will lead to a renewed bid for Scottish independence is a “looming cloud on the horizon”, potentially deterring inward investment, it says.
Brodies, Burness Paull, CMS and Pinsent Masons share the top ranking for law firms in the oil and gas market.
