Over 100 delegates attended the 2016 Compensate Personal Injury Network Annual Conference in Edinburgh last week. Speakers at the event included Sheriff Principal Mhairi Stephen QC and Douglas Mill, consultant and former CEO of the Law Society of Scotland.

Digby Brown Solicitors operate the Compensate Personal Injury Network (CPIN) which offers law firms throughout Scotland the option of working with Digby Brown on personal injury cases via either straight or partnership referrals. The network now has over 400 members in Scotland.

The CPD-accredited event covered a range of topical issues in the Scottish legal sector. In addition to the principal speakers, workshops covered improving profitability, managing risks and complaints, employment law and conducting Fatal Accident Inquiries.

The event raised £2,250 for Cash for Kids, a charity helping children disadvantaged through poverty or who are sick or disabled in Edinburgh, the Lothians and Fife for over 30 years.

The money was raised through generous donations from organisations attending the event, including Alex Quinn & Partners, Armstrong Watson, Intelligent Office, Laroque, LawWare, Moore Legal Technology, The Cashroom, Towry and Walker Love.

Digby Brown Partner Gordon Dalyell, Head of the firm’s Network Department, said:

“It was a pleasure to once again bring together practitioners from across the country to consider the ever changing challenges and opportunities facing the sector in Scotland. Sheriff Principal Stephen, Douglas Mill and others generously gave their time and expertise to provoke wide-ranging debate and discussion. 

“The network is all about delivering the very best services and outcomes for people who seek legal support and advice at a challenging time in their lives.  The conference has become an annual fixture and is just one of the wider benefits that members – now over 400 in Scotland – enjoy.

“I am also pleased the day allowed Digby Brown an opportunity to present Cash for Kids with a cheque in support of their vital work."
