MTM Defence Lawyers receive top tier accolades in Legal 500



Falkirk-based MTM Defence Lawyers has received a top-tier legal accreditation in the latest edition of the Legal 500. MTM is one of only four firms ranked as a top tier firm in Scotland for criminal law; the firm is also ranked and recommended for its work in fraud cases.

MTM is recognised in the following two practice areas: “crime general”, and “fraud”. In the latter, the firm is noted for its High Court work, with solicitor advocate Neil Hay singled out for having “developed a particular niche in mortgage fraud”. Solicitor Murray Aitken is also recognised for fraud work. In terms of general crime, the firm is described as “excellent in all respects”.

Mr Hay is praised for his strong client focus, and solicitor advocate Martin Morrow is highly commended for his “ability to identify key issues”.

MTM director Neil Hay said: “This is the fifth consecutive year in which MTM has been ranked by the Legal 500 UK and that is really important for us and for our clients. The rankings are based on both client recommendations and recommendations from other solicitors and counsel on their experience of the quality of our work. The research looks at the quality of our work both in and out of court.”
