Three new Partners at Digby Brown

Partner Promotions Summer 2019 - Simon Richards, Gavin Brogan and Mairi Day

Digby Brown Solicitors has marked its consistent year-on-year growth with the appointment of three new Partners.

Simon Richards, Mairi Day and Gavin Brogan assumed their new positions this month following a successful 2018/19.

Simon first joined the firm in 2009 with the Network Department before transferring to the Foreign & Travel team in 2010 – he has run the only reported PI case in ASPIC applying Spanish law (Sharon Gilmore v Linea Directa [2017]) as well as the only reported case applying the Private International Law (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1995 which was Raymond Wylie v Omniasig (2012).

Mairi joined Digby Brown in February 2005 with the Network Department and has consistently shown formidable expertise while assisting clients in employer liability cases and fatal road accidents such as Hamish Stanger v Erland Flaws (2016). Based in the firm’s Edinburgh office, Mairi is passionate about providing access to justice for those in need while also mentoring the next generation of legal minds.

Gavin joined Digby Brown’s General Litigation department almost 10 years ago after starting his career at Dentons LLP. Embedded in the firm’s Glasgow operation, Gavin has proven excellence in complex fatal workplace accidents such as Bridget Scanlon & Ors v Sir Robert McAlpine Ltd (2016).

Announcing the new promotions, Digby Brown Chief Executive Fraser Oliver said: “I’m delighted to welcome Simon, Mairi and Gavin to their new roles as Partners.

“They have each shown their commitment for delivering unrivalled results while acting for clients across Scotland with a proven aptitude for their chosen specialisms.

“It’s very simple – if we want to be regarded as the best at what we do then we actually have to be the best at what we do.

“That’s why the three goals for Digby Brown have remained strong and simple for years – in serving our clients we look to deliver excellence in access to justice, to be recognised as the leading personal injury firm in Scotland and to be an employer of choice.

“I look forward to the future with Simon, Mairi and Gavin in their new roles at Digby Brown as we continue to serve the people of Scotland in the pursuit of justice, answers and rightful damages.”
