Because it matters to you, it matters to Digby Brown

Corporate Social Responsibility

Our responsibilities matter

At Digby Brown, we are committed to operating our firm in a responsible way with our clients, staff and the communities we work in at the centre.

We take into account the way we do things from day to day, our values and the impact they have.

These can be summarised under our three main responsibilities; people, community and environment.

People matter

All our staff are dedicated to supporting clients through their legal journey helping them to receive not only the compensation they deserve but also the support they need at that time.

To ensure we have the best staff on hand to help, we provide a motivational, fulfilling and fun environment to work in with a focus on recruiting and retaining the top people, rewarding their efforts and recognising their achievements.

It is Digby Brown’s aim to develop an environment that values diversity within its workforce, encourages individuals to succeed and respond to the needs of all individuals in a fair and equitable manner, whilst accounting for current legislation.

In 2016, Digby Brown became the first law firm in the UK to earn Platinum accreditation from Investors in People which does not only illustrate our drive for high performance and self-improvement, but also the quality of our service to clients.

Every year our legal excellence hits (and indeed retains) the top spots in publications like Chambers Guide and Legal 500, as well as numerous Scottish Legal Awards, and deservedly so given the effort every single employee puts in.

Investors in People fits in with these accolades because a great workplace encourages great work, which encourages great productivity.

Community matters

At Digby Brown, we are proud to support the communities we work in and charitable causes through charity partnerships, staff volunteering and community events.

Charity partnerships

Each of our offices select a ‘Charity of the Year’ to work alongside and support throughout the year, championed by a Charity Ambassador. The total raised by each office is then matched by Digby Brown before being presented to the chosen charity at the end of the partnership.

To be considered as a charity partner for 2020/21, please complete and return our Charity Partnership Application Form by Friday 29th November 2019.

The Aberdeen team raise money for their local charity at their race night

The Dundee office take part in the Edinburgh Marathon Festival to raise money for their local charity

Staff volunteering

Whether clearing out a warehouse, tidying up hospital gardens, serving tea and coffee or bucket collecting at a football match, staff participate in volunteering activities that lend a hand to our charitable causes.

The team from the Glasgow office help clear out the Simon Community Scotland Warehouse

Community events

We help to organise and facilitate a number of events throughout the year to raise awareness and demonstrate the support available to those with brain injuries, spinal injuries and cerebral palsy.

Events include:

  • Head Injury Information Days
  • Spinal Injuries Scotland Activities Day
  • Cerebral Palsy Scotland Conference

Environment matters

Digby Brown recognises that our activities have an impact on the environment and aim to operate in an environmentally sustainable manner to reduce waste and improve recycling across the firm’s seven offices.

We are continuously working on ways to reduce our waste through initiatives such as the removal of plastic water cups from staff areas and providing all staff with reusable water bottles, implementing energy efficient motion activated lighting in our offices and encouraging staff to operate as a paperless work environment. We purchase recycled consumables where possible and encourage the disposal of waste paper, cardboard and plastics in the recycling bins provided.
