I have a particular enthusiasm for assisting family owned businesses. Having a large family of my own has helped me to understand how personal conflicts can affect someone’s business. I’ve aided families in resolving their issues for the benefit of all concerned, allowing their companies to continue developing without conflict or hindrance and assuring their future for all members of the family.
As well as my corporate practice within the firm, I’m also the Senior Tutor in the Company and Commercial course in the Post Graduate Diploma in Professional Legal Practice, a qualification required for all new lawyers before they can begin their careers. I’m also a member of a number of external bodies including the Institute of Directors, the International Bar Association and HM Writers to the Signet.
I act as the firm’s nominated representative of the international legal network known as Globalaw. Davidson Chalmers Stewart is the sole Scottish member of the Globalaw network.
