Digby Brown celebrates 30 years in Dundee
We were delighted to celebrate 30 years in our Dundee office at HMS Unicorn last month.
Dundee is one of our seven offices in Scotland and opened its doors in 1988 on Victoria Road, followed by a long spell at Panmure Street, before moving to their current location at Caledonian House on 24th September 2012. From its’ humble beginnings, the office has grown to over twenty-five legal members of staff and is home to our First Response team who handle all new legal enquiries.
The celebrations took place on Thursday 23rd August 2018 and Jenny Marra, MSP for North East Scotland, spoke at the evening commenting: “The work you do is so important and it’s worth valuing and remembering.
“You as lawyers are custodians of the legal system and everything you do with clients and in court serves to uphold our system and its values and the purpose of justice.”
Fraser Oliver, CEO at Digby Brown, also spoke about the 30 years in Dundee reflecting on the firm's role in pioneering "no win, no fee" arrangements making it easier for injured victims to access compensation and redress.
A birthday raffle took place as part of the evening celebrations to raise money for charity partner Food Train, with sought-after prizes including a signed copy of Lorraine Kelly’s latest book and picture of Lorraine Kelly herself as well as afternoon tea at the renowned Fairmont in St Andrews.
Throughout 2018, the Dundee office have been supporting this local charity who help older people living in the area and were delighted to raise over £1,700 on the night.
Fraser Oliver said: “It was a pleasure to welcome friends and colleagues from across the legal community to join us celebrating 30 years of practicing law in Dundee.
“As a firm, we are committed to being local and accessible to people across Scotland who need our help at a very difficult time in their lives.
“Our Dundee office has specialists in a wide range of areas of personal injury law, helping people whether injured on the roads, at work, or people who suffer from asbestos related conditions.
“Every case we take on is handled by a specialist with experience and expertise in their field, something which we feel sets us apart from other law firms in the area and we believe is key to our growth over recent years and in the future.”
