Sam Cowie joined Digby Brown in Inverness in 2012, having completed his traineeship with a Highland firm.

David and Sam have both played a central role in developing Digby Brown’s Inverness office and work on behalf of clients throughout the Highlands and Islands.

Laura Campbell has been at Digby Brown since 2009 and part of its First Response Unit, the initial point of contact and advice for thousands of new Digby Brown clients each year, since 2012. She has been closely involved in FRU’s expansion which has reflected Digby Brown’s growth in recent years.
