LLB (Hons), Dip LP, NP

Practice Areas & Specialisms

Garry trained with Macnabs, and right from the outset of his legal career his training was focused on court and tribunal work. After qualifying, he spent a two-year period working as a solicitor with a local authority, during which he gained useful insight and experience in a number of niche areas of law, such as Adults with Incapacity, and he is often appointed as Safeguarder by the court in Adults with Incapacity applications.

Over the years Garry has developed his reputation in representing and appearing for clients in the resolution of disputes wherever they need him in the Scottish Courts and Tribunals.

His loyal client following regularly returns to him for assistance when the need arises. Unlike many court solicitors at the larger national firms, Garry deals with cases from start to finish for his clients and regularly appears in person in court. When clients instruct him for a case, they know that Garry will be their solicitor throughout the case.

Garry’s specific areas of civil court expertise are in Contract Disputes, Property Disputes, Debt Recovery and Negligence Claims. Garry is also enthusiastic about taking on unusual civil cases, bringing in an advocate with the necessary specialism if required. In addition to Civil Court Representation, Garry also represents his clients in the criminal courts when the need arises, providing them with the necessary reassurance and one-to-one representation that makes the process less stressful than it often otherwise is.

Another key area of his expertise is Employment Law. Garry regularly advises both employer and employee in both contentious and non-contentious employment issues. He conducts and appears in Employment Tribunal cases from start to finish.

Garry has maintained his knowledge in Licensing Board and Tribunal matters from his time clerking those at the local authority , and deals with appearance work for clients of the firm in both.

Garry is also a tutor of Civil Advocacy on the Diploma in Legal Practice at Dundee University, passing on what he has learned over the years to future generations of civil court solicitors.

Garry is married with three children and lives in the beautiful Perthshire countryside. His pastimes include walking the family dogs, playing football, cycling and skiing.
