Leading Scottish law firm Thorntons has been named as one of the country’s top performing legal companies by a respected industry directory.
Thorntons achieved their best ever performance in Chambers UK Legal Directory with a total of nine rankings, scoring highly in agriculture, employment, media and entertainment, healthcare, intellectual property and immigration. The firm is also a top ranked firm in personal injury and family law and one of Scotland’s leaders in the area of wills, trusts and executries.
The Chambers UK Legal Directory, published each year, lists law firms commended for their outstanding technical legal ability, professional conduct, client service, commercial astuteness, diligence and commitment.
Thorntons was ranked as one of the best firms in the country, with one client branding the team "very good and very efficient” and another adding that the firm “strikes the right balance between being a welcoming, service-oriented business with professional competence.
Scott Milne, Joint Managing Partner at Thorntons said: “The excellent rankings we have achieved in this year’s Chambers UK Legal Directory are testament to all the hard work and dedication of the entire Thorntons team.
“We always strive to provide the best service we can to our clients, and it fills us with great pride to see this paying dividends.
“Although we know we have achieved great things this year, we will not be happy to rest on our laurels. We will be redoubling our efforts over the coming year to maintain our fine reputation.”
The Chambers UK Legal Directory is published yearly and is based on feedback and recommendations from clients and peers.
In September, Thorntons was named as one of the country’s top 10 best performing businesses.
The firm climbed 33 places to eighth in this year’s prestigious SME 300 table following a year in which both turnover and profits grew significantly.
