Press Release: Aberdein Considine ranked in ‘Top Tier’ by Legal 500


Aberdein Considine has been named as one of Scotland’s top law firms by a prestigious industry guide.

The firm has been awarded coveted ‘Top Tier’ status by the Legal 500 guide, which ranks and rates the best lawyers in the world.

The accolade is in the field of Dispute Resolution and Debt Recovery – and the firm has also been recognised in the Corporate and Commercial law, Commercial Property and Commercial Litigation legal disciplines.

Rob Aberdein, Partner, has again been personally recommended by the guide for his Debt Recovery work.

Jacqueline Law and Ritchie Whyte have also been handed personal recommendations in Corporate and Commercial for the second year running.

“It is a fantastic achievement for the firm to be recognised as one of the country’s leading debt recovery lawyers,” Mr Aberdein said.

“The Legal 500 is hugely respected within our industry and it is a significant step forward for Aberdein Considine to be included within it.

“We are particularly pleased that the researchers picked up on the regulatory advice we compliment our debt recovery service with. This is something we have invested in heavily over the past few years and a service which has become invaluable to a number of our larger clients in the banking sector.”

The Legal 500 series, which has been published for over two decades, is highly regarded by lawyers and clients alike due to its independent research-based assessment of law firm and lawyer capabilities.

In it, Aberdein Considine is described as “one of Scotland’s fastest growing law firms”.

The firm now has 300 partners and staff spread across Scotland, including the key legal cities of Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Perth and Stirling.

Its recognition in the Legal 500 comes just weeks after the Business Insider magazine ranked Aberdein Considine amongst the eight biggest law firms in Scotland.

Mrs Law, the firm’s Managing Partner, added: “With new offices in Aberdeen, Stirling and Glasgow opening during 2015, it has been another year of growth for the firm.

“We are delighted to see this growth reflected in these respected guides.”
