Jamie is an expert litigator. He specialises in banking, complex contractual, financial and insolvency disputes.
Jamie provides advice to a range of clients from multimillion pound private equity funds to small family businesses. His cases regularly contribute to the developing case law in his areas of practice and in recognition of this he is routinely invited to speak at legal conferences throughout Scotland.
Exceptionally for a litigator, Jamie’s expert knowledge of the Scottish court system and financial agreements has also led him to be instructed in a number of uncontentious matters drafting financial services agreements for private equity funds and insolvency practitioner firms.
Jamie is described as having “outstanding” technical ability and as an embodiment of the Firm’s entrepreneurial tagline. He will always look at the bigger picture, and he makes things happen. Above all, he is focused on achieving the very best possible outcome and “doing the right thing” for the client. Other lawyers describe him as simply “brilliant”.
“Jamie accompanied me to a very important meeting where my entire business was on the line. He was brilliant! Quietly combative to make it known we meant business but with the most pleasing and courteous manner resulting in the outcome, I was looking for. Thank you so, so much, Jamie.”
“My situation required expert knowledge and a sense of urgency, both of which Jamie delivered. I would have no reservation in recommending him and his Firm.”
