Blackadders Employment Team Nominated for Prestigious Award

The nomination recognises what has been a busy and successful period for the team and sees it nominated alongside law firms Allan McDougall Solicitors, CMS and Thompsons.

Simon Allison, who heads up the Employment Law Team commented “We are absolutely delighted to be nominated for this accolade. I believe that it is recognition of both the hard work and the quality service which the team has delivered over the last 12 months. Both Blackadders and the Employment Law Team are flattered to be named as one of the finalists.”

It has been a very busy year for the team which operates with two accredited employment law specialists in Simon Allison and Sandy Meiklejohn.  They are assisted by Jack Boyle and Andrew Wallace. The team has seen a number of new client wins and a marked increase in their interactive employment law seminars, with record numbers for the team throughout various locations in Scotland.

The Blackadders Employment Law Team are also frontrunners in their use of social media – Twitter in particular – for increasing their profile. By using social media, they were able to raise in excess of £5,000 for the NHS Tayside Health Fund having completed the gruelling 3 Peak Challenge – scaling the three highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales in just 24 hours.

Simon continued, “We are very much looking forward to what 2016 has in store for us. However, being named as a finalist for this award is without question a great start!”
