The Law Awards of Scotland 2013

22 October 2013

In-house winners of law awards

The ILG Committee was delighted to see that Colin Anderson, former ILG Vice Chair, was the recipient of a Special Recognition Award for "doing" at the Law Awards of Scotland 2013, which was presented on 12 September. This is a very well deserved recognition for Colin's many years of work for the in-house community as well as his day job at Standard Life, and other organisations and firms.

Standard Life's Group Legal Team scooped the In-house Team of the Year Award from a list of nominees that included Virgin Money, the Wheatley Group/the Glasgow Housing Association, and Glasgow City Council. This topped off an award-winning year for the Standard Life team, which also received the Private Sector In-house Legal Team of the Year Award at the Scott + Co Legal Awards in March, and has been nominated for the In-house Innovation Award at the British Legal Awards 2013.

The committee was pleased to see that in-house solicitors had been nominated in other categories at the Law Awards of Scotland, notably two solicitors from the Wheatley Group/the Glasgow Housing Association - Anne Mackenzie for Solicitor of the Year and Gillian Moore for Trainee of the Year. Their colleague, Jaclyn Wilson, received the Paralegal of the Year Award.

Congratulations to all the winners and nominees.
