Scott Duff & Co. Solicitors

Hugh Andrew Scott Duff 1945 – 2018

It is with great sadness that we must announce the passing of Andrew Duff on Thursday 14th June 2018. Andrew founded Scott Duff & Co in 1977 and worked tirelessly to build the firm we have today starting with one man in an office over 40 years ago. He has been a huge inspiration to staff and directors here and was much loved not only as a colleague and boss but as a friend and mentor to many.

Over the years Andrew found his specialism in Clinical Negligence and enjoyed working from the Keswick office where he could walk in the Lakes at lunch times. Sadly, in February 2015 he was forced to retire much sooner than he had planned due to ill health, and finally lost his well fought battle with cancer on Thursday 14th June 2018.

The thoughts of all of us from Scott Duff & Co are with his wife Susan and all of Andrew’s family at this extremely sad time.

Scott Duff & Co., solicitors in Carlisle, Penrith & Keswick, provides legal services throughout Cumbria.

We were founded as a law firm by Andrew Duff in 1977. It began with just a one man solicitors in an office in Penrith but his vision and commitment propelled the law firm to our present position within the legal profession. Andrew retired in 2015 leaving behind a well established and highly regarded legal practice with 3 solicitors offices, 6 Directors and over 25 staff.

Our team of solicitors aim to provide the highest quality of advice and service by combining specialist qualifications, experience and local knowledge with a straight forward approach.

We offer, by prior arrangement, out of hours appointments and home visits.
