Law firm wins right to act for police and SPA

Law firm Morton Fraser has been appointed to provide legal services to Police Scotland and the Scottish Police Authority (SPA) over the next two years.

The contract was awarded through a competitive tender process and includes two potential one-year extensions.

Morton Fraser previously provided services including firearms licensing, personal injury and public protection work to Police Scotland but this is the first time it will have acted for the SPA.

The firm will provide guidance on employment law, general legal and litigation advice to both organisations as well as support with inquiries and reviews – including Fatal Accident Inquiries (FAIs) and statutory inquiries. Morton Fraser has acted in notable inquiries and representing Air Accident Investigation Branch in the Clutha inquiry.

Morton Fraser partner David Hossack said: “This appointment is a significant achievement for our Public Sector team and we are thrilled to continue working with Police Scotland, and begin working with the SPA, providing support on a range of unique and sensitive pieces of work.”

Jenny Dickson, partner and Solicitor Advocate on the Public Sector team and Head of Inquiries, added: “We live in a society where inquiries are a popular means to understanding how a serious event took place, and over the past few years, we have built up substantial expertise guiding clients through these processes.

“These are an important way of raising public awareness of issues and identifying practices which could be improved in the future to deliver better outcomes, and we are looking forward to bringing our knowledge to Police Scotland and the SPA.”
