The “Legal 500”, an independent research organisation, has, this week, published their annual 2015 ranking tables for the Scottish Legal marketplace. For over 25 years, The “Legal 500” analyses the capabilities of law firms and undertakes a comprehensive research programme, assessing the strengths of law firms in a number of jurisdictions worldwide.

The 2015 UK Rankings include Top Tier recognition for Drummond Miller’s Clinical Negligence team with a special recognition for the “organised, caring and compassionate” Liesa Spiller who heads up the team and is an accredited specialist in Clinical Negligence.

In response to the announcement, Liesa said:-

“I am delighted that the team’s hard work, dedication, knowledge and commitment have been recognized in this way. We genuinely enjoy the work and being able to assist those who have been let down by the medical profession, with sometimes quite catastrophic consequences. We will continue to strive to represent our clients in this difficult legal area to the very best of our ability”.

Drummond Miller’s top tier recognition in Clinical Negligence places them at the forefront of the pursuit for justice for those who have been the unfortunate recipients of substandard care by the medical profession.

The “Legal 500” only designates four firms in Scotland as worthy of “Top Tier” status in this complex and challenging area of the law. It is, therefore, testament to the high regard in which clients and other lawyers (whose references play such a key role in the research process) hold our Clinical Negligence team, that this significant achievement has been accomplished.

For another consecutive year, Drummond Miller has also maintained its “Leading Firm” ranking in the field of Personal Injury within the 2015 “Legal 500” guide.
