Our history

Scott Rees & Co was founded in 1992 by Peter Scott and Daniel Rees.

They wanted to provide a service that could offer victims of accidents caused by someone else’s negligence with an access to justice. You shouldn’t have to suffer injury, financial loss and property damage because of the carelessness of someone else. Peter and Daniel had one simple aim and vision with Scott Rees & Co, and that was to provide the best personal injury legal service, advice and care for accident victims in the UK.

How we've grown

Founded in 1992 as a personal injury firm, we have now added conveyancing and wills & probate as strings to our bow.

We have around 150 employees divided across our specialist departments in road traffic accidents, employers’ negligence, public liability, medical negligence, catastrophic injury, conveyancing, wills and probate and more.

Outside of our legal teams, our workforce also includes departments in human resources, marketing, information technology, costs and accounts.

You can find out more about our departments in Our People.
