We are immensely proud of the team for gaining this excellent recognition within such a prestigious directory.

What is the significance of this accolade?

“Chambers and Partners is an independent research company operating across 200 jurisdictions delivering detailed rankings and insight into the world’s leading lawyers… We conduct hundreds of thousands of investigative interviews and market surveys every year, with in-house counsel and third-party experts, delivering detailed insight into providers of legal services. It is this rigorous independent process that makes Chambers the gold standard in legal insight”.

Diana McLeish Head of Marketing at Scullion LAW “Being in Chambers is such an honour. You cannot buy your way in. You need to earn it. Everything is achieved purely through merit, sheer grit and determination. For those who are not familiar with the directory, Chambers & Partners UK spend hours and hours researching and analysing the credibility of each firm. They listen to market feedback and rely on client testimonials. Only the top lawyers and law firms are ranked and we are delighted to be one of them. Well done to everyone (throughout Scotland) who is also listed in this category for Crime. We know the effort that goes in to pulling the submissions together in addition to juggling client’s needs, so well done and special thanks to everyone who gave a review or spoke to the research panel on our behalf. It means a lot to us all.

It is hard to win a ranking and we are super proud of our team that their hard work, passion, determination and a lot of sacrifice has been recognised during one of the most challenging years in history. When courts closed everyone was forced to work from home, juggling the pressures of home schooling, keeping themselves and their families safe, balancing work/life and navigating their way through the uncertainty of the pandemic.

Our team pulled together and were able to pivot quickly in order to survive. We are happy to be where we are now, looking back on the year that was, but it was hard work.

Not only did the department survive – I am proud to say – it thrived.

Our team have had to expand to cope with the increasing demand and in the last year we have welcomed Urfan, Anna, Lucy, Shannon, Hazel to the Court Team. We have another Solicitor Advocate Judith Hutchison, who is soon going to be joining us. Keep an eye on our socials. Thanks once again for your ongoing encouragement and support on behalf of all of us at Scullion LAW”.

Managing Director Nicholas Scullion “First and foremost we want to thank our clients for their continued support and every single member in our hard working team. I am very proud that we have been listed in Chambers as one of the top rated criminal defence firms in Scotland.

It’s a huge honour.

Kris, Urfan, Anna, Lucy, Shannon and Patricia do a remarkable job every day, fighting for justice within the court team. They are building on the legacy of my father, who founded our firm, specialising in criminal defence. He is a legend of the Hamilton Criminal Bar.

I was in the court team for many years and tell you that this team is the best team we have had so far. They live our values. It’s wonderful to see their work being recognised and my father’s legacy honoured.

None of this would have happened without Diana who inspired and drafted the submission, and motivated the team to do what was needed to be noticed.

Thank you also to our client care and support teams whose tireless work makes this all possible.

Finally, thanks to each and every one of you for your contribution. This is a team effort and we are all members of the Scullion law family”.
