Legal firm Harper Macleod has added to its personal injury & reparation team with its fourth recruit in the past month, Ciaran Dougherty, who joins as an associate.

Previously with Brodies LLP, where he specialised in personal injury and insurance work, Mr Dougherty brings experience across all aspects of personal injury work including acting for both individuals and major insurance companies.

A competitive runner and cyclist, he has a particular interest in Harper Macleod's sports law practice.

Chief executive Martin Darroch commented: "Ciaran is a great addition to the firm and another statement of our intent in the personal injury and insurance sphere. We have an already great team in place but are always looking to add talented individuals to it and Ciaran is exactly the type of person we believe can add to the quality and depth of service we offer to all of our clients."
