I have extensive experience in both Sheriff Court (where I frequently appear) and in the Court of Session, dealing with all types of commercial litigation. I have advised the diverse range of clients the firm acts for, from private individuals to international blue-chip organisations. In doing so, I have acted in cases in the Land Court, Lands Tribunal, Tax Tribunal and the Housing Tribunal on a regular basis. Working together with Laura Tainsh in the Environmental Team, I have particular experience in guiding our waste management clients through civil disputes and statutory appeals.
My objective is to seek a pragmatic and commercial solution for clients. Consequently, I am a strong advocate for seeking resolution using alternative procedure such as mediation and arbitration, where the circumstances call for it. Where settlement is not possible by those means, I have a clear track record of advising clients throughout their dispute to a successful outcome.
Outside the office I can usually be found playing and writing music or going to gigs. As self-appointed coach of the firm’s award-winning running club, I’m also a keen long-distance runner.
