Profile submitted by Garry Ferguson
Garry has over 20 years’ litigation experience, 17 years of which has involved working almost exclusively in the Defenders’ personal injury field. Garry’s ability to achieve impressive results for his clients across the full spectrum of liability claims led to him being assumed as a partner in 2013. Garry heads the firm’s catastrophic injury team along side Catherine Currie and Carly Forrest, handling high value, catastrophic and complex personal injury claims for a wide range of clients. His caseload includes employers’ and public liability cases, occupational stress/harassment claims, fatal claims, as well as motor claims. Garry is a former Scottish Chairman of the Forum of Insurance Lawyers (FOIL) and will assume the role of National Representative for Scotland on FOIL’s UK-wide National Committee later this year. Garry regularly provides training to a number of major insurers and is also responsible for setting up and coordinating bespoke internal training programmes for claims handlers for a number of these insurers.
