Scottish Cycling teams up with Digby Brown
Digby Brown and Scottish Cycling have renewed a partnership deal that helps boost the sport while giving cyclists access to expert legal care.
Diane Cooper, partner at Digby Brown, confirmed the deal after meeting with star athletes at the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome in Glasgow last week.
The announcement comes as the road and track athletes gear up with Team Scotland ahead of the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games in July.
Ms Cooper said: “Our excitement in partnering with Scottish Cycling is borne from our dedication to helping Scottish cyclists.
“Every day we help cyclists affected by road traffic collisions whether it’s knocks, broken bones or serious head injuries and all that matters is injured people get the support they deserve.
“The support Digby Brown provides cyclists and Scottish Cycling members doesn’t just recover compensation for broken bikes or injuries - it safeguards their future and hopefully might even help some regain their confidence to get back on the saddle.”
Nick Rennie, CEO of Scottish Cycling, echoed the need to ensure cyclists have access to recognised specialist legal care.
He added: “The sport is growing and we’re encouraging more people to join Scottish Cycling.
“With that membership there’s lots of benefits and one of those benefits is that in the unlikely event you need it is the five-star legal service you get from Digby Brown so if that unfortunate accident were to happen you’re in safe hands with them.”
