Digby Brown Highly Commended in the Litigation Category at the Scottish Legal Awards for 2011

Digby Brown has been recognised for another outstanding year for the firm at the Scottish Legal Awards in the category of Litigation Team of the Year for 2011. The firm won the award in 2010 and this year was singled out by the judges and highly commended in the most competitive category which saw nine firms battle for top honors.

The judges said: “the firm deserved due recognition for some outstanding work.” For Digby Brown this is reward for the past year in which the firm has grown significantly whilst still keeping to its core principles of ensuring that all cases are run from the outset by qualified solicitors.

The category of Litigation Team of the Year is for Digby Brown the ultimate award to enter, partly the competitive nature of the category, but more so because litigation is the heartbeat of the firm. For every client of Digby Brown, access to justice is paramount, our intention and preparation is based on the case going into court. Although a significant number of cases will be settled long before the court date, preparing in this way ensures the best possible financial outcome for every single client. Digby Brown knows this and the defending firm knows this, usually instructed by an Insurance company – therefore they understand our no nonsense approach and robust negotiations if a case is to settle outside of court. Statistically we have proven you will receive at least double and in cases at the Court of Session up to three times as much as the pre-litigation offer.
