Accredited by the Signet Society as a Specialist in Commercial Litigation

Gillian is a hugely experienced and prominent court lawyer based in our Dundee office. She advises a broad range of businesses, public sector bodies and individuals on diverse disputes but specialises in professional negligence, property litigation and insolvency, and in proceedings before regulatory bodies such as the Lands Tribunal, Licensing Boards and fitness to practice committees.

Gillian has recently handled professional negligence claims including: pursuing damages for the failure of a client’s previous solicitor to effectively serve a notice to terminate a lease of commercial premises, and pursuing a chartered accountant who failed to take appropriate care to protect the client from email fraud as a result of which considerable sums were lost.

Gillian has also undertaken work including: representing the liquidator of a company in substantial misfeasance proceedings under the Insolvency Act 1986 against the director of the company for sums redirected to a related company of which he was also a director to the prejudice of creditors; acting for the operators of a holiday park in disputes with a number of lodge owners arising out of the terms of Licence Agreements including payment of site fees, issues of fire safety and duration of occupation; and representing consulting engineers in a dispute with a developer on the interpretation of complex contractual documentation and whether additional services provided fell outwith fixed fees and were therefore due for additional payment.

Gillian also sits as a Chairperson of the First-tier Tribunal for Scotland (Housing & Property Chamber).
