Top award for le­gal firm

Rutherglen Reformer - - Gossip Girl -

A law firm that has rep­re­sented the peo­ple of South La­nark­shire and aast Glas­gow for a gen­er­a­tion has been recog­nised for its ser­vice to clients.

Scul­lion Law - which em­ploys sev­eral peo­ple from Ruther­glen - won the ex­cel­lence in client care award at the re­cent Scot­tish Le­gal Awards cer­e­mony in Ed­in­burgh.

The fifth time the law firm has been recog­nised by the na­tional awards scheme, Scul­lion Law was cel­e­brated for the putting clients at the cen­tre of ev­ery­thing they do.

Based in Hamil­ton, the firm was es­tab­lished in 1979 by Ni­cholas James Scul­lion, who later passed the busi­ness on to his son and a team of lawyer. They re­named the busi­ness Scul­lion & Co and opened a branch in the east end.

Ex­plain­ing the com­pany beat stiff com­pe­ti­tion from large com­pa­nies such as Digby Brown, CMS and Mc­Queen Le­gal to win, Ni­cholas Scul­lion Jnr said the award recog­nised the hard work of his 40-strong team of staff.

He said:“We would like to thank our loyal clients for pro­vid­ing us with glow­ing tes­ti­mo­ni­als and re­view­ing us on Face­book. All feed­back we re­ceive is ap­pre­ci­ated as it helps us to con­tin­u­ously im­prove our ser­vice.

“Twelve judges drawn from law and busi­ness re­viewed many en­tries this year, with the new cat­e­gory for ex­cel­lence in client care prov­ing to be one of the most pop­u­lar, so we are thrilled. Thank you to our ex­tended Scul­lion Law fam­ily which in­cludes our staff and clients. This award is ded­i­cated to all of you.”

Scul­lion Law has picked up four other Scot­tish le­gal awards in the past six years in­clud­ing crim­i­nal lawyer of the year in 2010, para­le­gal of the year in 2010 and 2012 and spe­cial­ist lawyer of the year in 2015.

It was also named a fi­nal­ist in last year’s com­mu­nity con­tri­bu­tion award.
