The solicitors at Motorcycle Law Scotland are both experienced specialist solicitors and motorcyclists. Four members of the team are Advanced riders, having passed their IAM Advanced motorcycle test.
The firm has now moved up a gear by adding another layer of expertise and support to their team in the form of IAM examiner, Lee Fisher and ex-Police and Insurance professional, Ewen Stewart.
Until his recent retirement, Lee was an Advanced Police motorcyclist and Advanced Police driver; he was also a Road Policing Forensic Investigator with Police Scotland. He was attached to the Road Policing Unit on road patrol duties for 21 years and attended, investigated and reported on numerous fatal and serious road collisions over that period.
Brenda Mitchell, Senior Partner, is delighted with the new appointments saying:
“Lee's experience and expertise is invaluable. He will be supporting the team of motorcycling solicitors to investigate collisions and establish fault and negligence.
“We are very fortunate to have our own in-house collision investigator on hand. It’s already been fascinating consulting with Lee in relation to the causal factors at play with some of our more challenging cases.
“Working with Lee will enable us to further expand our knowledge base and provide an improved service for our injured motorcycling clients. “
Legal Assistant, Ewen Stewart, who was part-time has now joined the team on a full-time basis. Ewen has experience of both Policing and the Insurance industry. He was a Detective Officer within Strathclyde Police and then worked as an investigation’s manager for Zurich Insurance.
“The provision of legal services is becoming increasingly specialised and that’s why we have both highly skilled solicitors and highly skilled investigators on our team as we work together to get the right result for our clients.”
