Digby Brown officially celebrated the opening of the new Inverness office with a relaxed and informal drinks reception on Wednesday 7th March. The event was well attended with over 70 guests enjoying a glass of champagne and a nibble before Darrell Kaye, Partner and Head of the new office said a few words of welcome.

The office has been open now for six months.

15th August 2011 saw the doors open of the firm's new office in Inverness.  The office located on the ground floor at Moray House, 16 – 18 Bank Street, will be initially manned by five and headed up by Digby Brown Partner Darrell Kaye. Digby Brown already has offices in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dundee and Glenrothes and has actively been considering the addition of an Inverness office for some time.

Brian Castle, Partner and Executive Board Member said:  “The last few years have seen unprecedented growth in the firm.  We have always had a large number of clients in the Highlands and Islands.  The increasing level of instructions from this area and our ethos to offer the best possible service combined with direct access to highly qualified legal personnel were all valid pointers to opening an office in Inverness.  The new office will allow us to truly offer a National service and bring our expertise, specialism and experience at a local level.” 

Heading up the new office is Darrell Kaye, Solicitor and Partner.  Darrell has worked at Digby Brown since 2002, qualifying as a solicitor in 2004.  She is an extremely experienced litigator in both Sheriff and Court of Session, having successfully concluded a wide range of accident at work; road traffic accident; public liability and industrial disease claims.  She relocates from Digby Brown’s Edinburgh offices.

Darrell commented: “When Digby Brown approached me and offered the opportunity to help open up a new office in Inverness, I didn’t have to think too long.  This is both a huge opportunity to be in on the ground of a new venture and on a personal level, a stage from which I can further utilise the experience I have in personal injury claims and also help grow the firm. We already work with hundreds of clients across the Highlands and Islands as well as a variety of charitable bodies and organisations. The new Inverness office will act as a home for these clients, whilst giving us a local focus to allow many more people to access justice from Scotland’s leading personal injury firm of lawyers.”
