Dispute Resolution & Claims, Professional Negligence


John is an experienced litigator advising clients, from individuals and small business to multinational companies and public sector organisations. He deals with a vast range of litigation matters both white and blue collar criminal and commercial, from minor offences to multi-million pound disputes. He also has a particular interest in advising media organisations and news outlets across Scotland.

John has significant experience of professional negligence claims including, claims against solicitors, accountants, financial advisors, builders, property search companies and a host of other professionals. He is currently pursuing a firm of solicitors for failing to provide proper advice to an immigration client which resulted in the client and their family having to remove themselves from the United Kingdom, and another firm of solicitors that failed to properly inspect the title to the property that their client was purchasing which resulted in years of aggravation at the hands of their neighbours. In each case the conduct of the solicitors fell below the standard of an ordinarily competent solicitor and their insurers will have to pay compensation to their victims.

John’s experience gives him an excellent understanding of the litigation process from both sides and he appears in courts across Scotland representing client’s interests and robustly pursuing their cases.
