Shoosmiths’ Real Estate division has won the Property Legal Team of the Year accolade at the annual Scottish Property Awards.

At the 7th annual celebration of the awards, held in Edinburgh last night, the firm's 25+ strong team was named ahead of finalists Dentons and Brodies.

In the past the firm has secured a number of new blue chip clients in Scotland, including Robertson Group and Keepmoat, and opened a Glasgow office to complement its Edinburgh operation and maximise the opportunities for growth it has identified in the west.

Janette Speed, recently appointed head of Real Estate for Shoosmiths in Scotland, commented: “The award underlines our growing presence and ambition for further growth in Scotland and rightly recognises the reputation of our Real Estate division as best in class, and a quality team putting the client experience at the heart of everything it does.”
