Scottish Business Awards

Balfour+Manson is proud to announce it has been nominated for an award in the Marketing Strategy of the Year category of the prestigious 2013 Scottish Business Awards.
This year, the awards ceremony will be attended by former US President, Bill Clinton and First Minister Alex Salmond together with leading figures from Scottish business, industry and politics.
Balfour+Manson is one of eight contenders to be shortlisted after demonstrating an innovative and successful approach to raising its profile by utilising leading names from the world of Scottish sports and culture.    
Fred Tyler, Chairman of Balfour+Manson commented, “I am delighted that as Balfour+Manson enters its 125th year we have been nominated for a Scottish Business Award.  At a time when the legal sector is facing one of its most challenging periods – and having to adapt to new ways of working – it is vital that the firm continues to be innovative in both delivering legal services and connecting with our audiences and clients alike. This nomination is recognition of the fact that Balfour+Manson is doing just that.”
Elaine Motion, Head of Litigation at Balfour+Manson (who attended last year’s event with Nobel Peace Prize recipient Professor Muhammad Yunus) commented, “The ethos of the awards that business and entrepreneurship are the primary driving forces behind growth and development is one shared by Balfour+Manson. It’s great to know that all profits from the event will go to charities that promote enterprise and entrepreneurship to achieve social aims.”
Sejal Majithia-Jaswal, Marketing & Business Development Director of Balfour+Manson said, “By engaging our core asset – our people – and by developing existing relationships with Scottish celebrities, we have been able to raise the profile of the firm in a highly positive way. Being nominated for this award, alongside other leading businesses, is both an honour and recognition that Balfour+Manson is an innovator within the Scottish legal services market.”  
The firm has been nominated in the Marketing Strategy of the Year category alongside Border Biscuits Ltd, Cala Group, Cigna Healthcare, Herald & Times, Langstane Press, LBi and Stratmore Hotels.
The awards ceremony will take place at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre on 21st June 2013 with 1400 guests attending, making it the biggest business awards event in Scottish history – and the biggest business event in the UK this year.
