Future of Scotland event series | In association with The Times Scotland
Following the 'Future of Scotland' event series in association with The Times, Scotland, we asked our panelists what they believe the future holds for Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee and Aberdeen.
A real meeting of minds
On 1 June Addleshaw Goddard combined with HBJ to create a UK wide firm with increased practice and sector bench strength and greater flexibility around resourcing and delivery for our clients.
Our enlarged business is better placed to understand our clients’ markets, particularly in our eight key sectors: financial services, retail and consumer, real estate, industrials, energy and utilities, transport, digital and health. We also continue to enjoy our work for international corporations, financial institutions, public sector bodies, successful businesses and private individuals.
The range and scale of our client assignments, transactions and projects wouldn’t be possible without our people, who are truly exceptional, committed and our greatest asset. They love what they do, are committed to your success and will, together, continue building valued partnerships through their collective energy and expertise.
We are looking to the future. We are working with companies and clients to help them build their future.
