Myra Scott

Partner

Biography

Our associated firm, Irwin Mitchell Scotland LLP, was established on 26 April 2011. I am a member of Irwin Mitchell Scotland LLP.

I am the partner in charge of recoveries in Glasgow. I act for institution lenders in property and litigation disputes, including professional negligence claims arising from these. The unique crossover between property and litigation affords greater benefits to the client in this field.

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

I am slightly ashamed to admit it was the court battles on LA Law (coupled with their coffee and cake meetings). In some ways Glasgow Sheriff Court and Gandolfi Cafe brought a new and interesting variation on that. Whilst I still enjoy appearing in court, resolution is often achieved by commercial and pragmatic negotiation.

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

The relationships built up with clients and within my department over the last 10 years working in the recoveries field. I very much enjoy delivering bespoke training programmes internally and externally to extend knowledge in this area. I am also the pro bono co-ordinator for Glasgow, which incorporates corporate and social responsibility duties. I thoroughly appreciate the enjoyment employees take from this while providing great benefit to the community.

What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?

I joined IM in 2007 when Golds merged with this firm. Golds always had a sterling reputation but it was enhanced by the broader and more extensive reputation of IM.

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

I am chauffeur to my 11 year old daughter, which involves a lot of dropping off and picking up. Since she is now my height I'd better say very flattering things about her. I like exercise that's fun as well as keeping me fit, and I enjoy Zumba class and badminton.
