Record number of trainees

People on their way to work

Digby Brown has announced it has taken on a record number of trainees, with 12 joining the firm across four offices and six departments.

The new intake will bolster the personal injury, clinical negligence and employment areas of the firm across a number of departments, including Insurance Litigation, Union, Referral, Industrial Disease, Correspondent and Foreign and Travel Law Departments.

The 12 trainees will be based in four of the firm’s five offices; Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dundee and Inverness.

Fraser Oliver, Digby Brown Partner and Executive Board member, highlighted the record numbers, noting that it built on last year’s addition of ten trainees and reflected the firm’s continued expansion and commitment to growth across Scotland;

“It’s a great pleasure to announce such a substantial number of trainees have started with the firm this month and we look forward to supporting them to develop their careers within Digby Brown. As leaders in our field, we’re committed to expanding our presence across the country and I’m particularly pleased that this year’s trainees will be based in four of our offices and six of our departments.

“At Digby Brown, we pride ourselves on the breadth and depth of legal expertise, experience, and the quality of our training. Our accreditation to deliver the PEAT 2 training in house, and our core legal education programme, will ensure that the new trainees are supported in developing the skills they need to maintain the firm’s quality approach to client service and can help us to continue to deliver results for our clients while continuing their own legal development.”
