Digby Brown was named Law Firm of the Year in 2019 – the fourth time in five years – which reflects the firm’s preeminent place in the personal injury sector. Delivering results by leading in civil litigation within the All Scotland Personal Injury Court and the Court of Session, the firm recovered over £130m for pursuers in 2018/2019. Independently verified statistics show the firm consistently achieved, on average, more than three times the pre-litigation offer made by defending insurers. Digby Brown’s practice is split into specialist areas which deal with clients’ claims based on the nature of accident, type of injury or whether the client was injured while living and working in Scotland or abroad. Cases can be funded via a bespoke funding and indemnity package through Digby Brown’s litigation funding company, Compensate, giving clients access to justice while funding all case expenses. The firm recently achieved notable successes for victims of high profile institutional abuse and the families and survivors of the Clutha and bin lorry tragedies. A growing Professional Support function keeps Digby Brown at the forefront of personal injury law. The firm is one of only a small number in Scotland to have a Professional Support Lawyer function, particularly among firms specialising in personal injury litigation. Of the 40 solicitors and litigators ranked with APIL a total of 20 are employed with Digby Brown - including APIL's President Gordon Dalyell.
