Partner, and head of department, Audrey Junner has recently been accredited by the Law Society of Scotland as a specialist in Liquor Licensing Law. The Specialist Accreditation scheme recognises solicitors who have developed expert knowledge in their field through their experience with complex cases, marking them out as "capable beyond the ordinary". Audrey has practised exclusively in licensing since 2007 and is also top-ranked in the influential Chambers Guide to the legal profession. She handles a range of matters including gambling, civic government and liquor work for both multinational and independent operators. Her accreditation makes us the only firm in Scotland to have two licensing specialists, with Jack Cummins already holding that award.
