recognised leaders in the development of the law of negligence



Ninety years ago a poor little snail had an unfortunate accident. His accident laid the foundation for the modern law of negligence in common law jurisdictions across the world by establishing the general principles of the duty of care.

Our firm’s logo is a tribute to that poor little snail. 

The Law Society of Scotland is hosting an international conference to commemorate the anniversary called “The Immortal Snail”.  We will be attending via Zoom. For more details about the conference and the story of the poor little snail follow this link.
