The Law Awards of Scotland 2016

December 2016

Graeme McKinstry has been awarded the highly coveted accolade of "Managing Partner of the Year" at the prestigious Law Awards of Scotland - a distinguished event recognising the inimitable work carried out by Scotland's top lawyers and law firms. Bringing together the country’s most respected lawyers and legal firms, the Law Awards of Scotland is the leading legal awards in the country.

The "Managing Partner of the Year" Award recognises and rewards effective leadership skills that are proven to drive a law firm and its clients to success. The prestigious judging panel, composed of business and legal industry leaders, chose Graeme for his skills in stimulating the strategic development of The McKinstry Company in its growth and service delivery achievements, as well as its retention, and importantly, development of key personnel in the team. The judges recognised Graeme's commanding ability to lead a team of professionals in a time of change and in an ever increasing, dynamic market for legal advice.

“Managing lawyers is notoriously difficult because they are fiercely independent of mind and highly capable individuals. I am fortunate enough however, to have around me a team who tirelessly work for the collective good of the practice, and that alone makes an otherwise daunting task, both a privilege and highly rewarding. I am very grateful and appreciative to the judges in receiving this accolade, the timing of which could not be better, as I am developing a Management Consultancy to the legal profession”.

As well as winning the prestigious "Managing Partner of the Year" Award, Graeme also led The McKinstry Company to success in winning over stiff competition in the "High Street Firm of the Year" category for the second time. The panel of judges commended the growth of The McKinstry Company and its continued commitment to staff development within the practice, as well as its financial success and numerous positive client testimonials.

Graeme commented, “I am delighted on behalf of all of my colleagues, the lawyers and support staff, whose collective encouragement, application, diligence and unwavering commitment to the highest quality of service delivery, has been acknowledged by the judges. This Award reflects the contributions which are made by the entire team."
