A highly experienced litigator and key partner in our Band 1 ranked professional indemnity team, Louise has handled all types of claims and complaints arising from professional services and business. In particular she handles disputes arising from the occupation and operation of premises; mergers and acquisitions; private and equity investment and tax schemes; and construction and demolition projects. 

Louise is most regularly instructed by insurers to represent the interests of professionals, including accountants, financial advisers, construction professionals, lawyers, immigration advisers and educational institutions. She has particular expertise in handling high profile and sensitive disputes where there are reputational issues to consider. Louise also regularly advises insurers and businesses on complex coverage issues, including for high profile events such as corporate mergers, sponsorship deals and sporting events.

As an accredited mediator, Louise is highly skilled in alternative dispute resolution. She is described by Legal 500 as “refreshingly frank” and “exceptionally down to earth in her personal engagement and…accurate assessment of the situation” and “the correct practical approach to take to solve it”. 

Louise has authored numerous articles relevant to the insurance sector and is a regular contributor to both the firm’s online resources and its specialist insurance and risk twitter feed which delivers knowledge and expertise directly to our clients and contacts.

In 2019 Louise was ranked by Legal 500 as Scotland’s only “Next Generation Partner” in professional negligence.
