Successful first CPIN Members Conference

Speaking at a Conference

The inaugural CPIN Members Conference was held in Glasgow in early June, bringing together delegates from member firms across Scotland for a half-day of networking, CPD discussion of the challenges and opportunities facing legal practices as a result of changes in the sector.

The CPD-accredited event featured a mixture of plenary, panel discussion at break-out sessions, covering current and likely Government plans to reform the composition and structure of the court system, highlighting cases brought to a successful conclusion through the CPIN network and developments in the fields of Clinical Negligence, Employment Law and Criminal Law practice.

Speakers at the event included Brian Fitzpatrick, Advocate, who discussed Ronald Hill v Norside Limited, a case brought via the CPIN network which settled after proof for over £1.4m, Digby Brown’s Graeme Garrett, who provided a comprehensive overview of the future of personal injury law and litigation, and Sue Grant and Douglas Jaap from the firm, who ran break-out sessions on Clinical Negligence and Employment Law respectively. 

Gary Allan QC provided the closing keynote address, drawing on his years of criminal practice and experience as a Senior Advocate Depute in the Crown office to discuss the future of criminal and civil practice in Scotland.

Outside of the main sessions, a networking lunch and drinks reception at the close of the event provided delegates with the opportunity to meet each other, discuss areas of common practice and commercial interest, a key benefit of the Compensate Personal Injury Network, along with the opportunity to work with Digby Brown on  specialist personal injury cases.

The Glasgow conference is anticipated to be the first of a regular programme of CPIN Network Member events across Scotland.
