David joined the firm as a Senior Solicitor in June 2019, having focussed on dispute resolution throughout his traineeship and then having specialised in professional indemnity work for several years after qualifying as a solicitor. He is commercially astute, with a keen awareness of the economic and reputational implications of such disputes for businesses and individuals, and he works hard to protect the interests of his clients.

David has expertise in acting for a wide range of professionals, with a particular focus on those practising in the construction industry, including architects, engineers and surveyors, as well as solicitors, accountants and financial advisors. He regularly advises on insurance coverage and policy response. He has a particular interest in the use of alternative dispute resolution.

Having also spent time on secondment with a major UK insurer, David has invaluable insight into the client’s perspective, with experience of managing claims and instructing panel solicitors. He has also worked as a research assistant and taught contract and commercial law at the University of Edinburgh, where he continues to tutor in contract law on a part-time basis.
