Cat McGarrell has joined Gilson Gray after nine years at Thompsons Solicitors.

During this time, she was responsible for a range of sensitive group cases involving personal injury and medical product liability and the Kenyan tea farmers’ claim against one of the largest global tea producers last year. In 2020, she raised Scotland’s first-ever group action under the chapter 26A group proceedings rules.

Rosie Walker, head of litigation at Gilson Gray, said: “The capability to handle group claims complements our core litigation expertise and opens the door to new markets and clients.

“The team’s continued growth reflects its strength and depth, and Cat’s experience will only add to our success to date. She has a proven track record in helping hundreds of people to resolve sensitive and complex issues and we are excited to welcome her on board.”

Cat McGarrell said: “Mass litigation is an interesting and rewarding area of legal work and I am looking forward to taking that one step further in my new role, both leading the new specialism and helping it to grow.”
