Biography

David has a recognised technical ability in a range of areas combined with broad legal experience. Clients appreciate his sensible, determined and pragmatic approach to dispute resolution.

With particular interest in property based litigation, David is consulted by clients in matters such as property damage, boundary disputes, commercial leasing, title obligations, and housing law (public and private sectors). He has for a number of years acted for some of Scotland’s largest property factors such as Life Property Management and Speirs Gumley. He recently presented at the annual conference of The Property Managers’ Association Scotland.

Significant court actions he has managed recently include a substantial indemnity claim against a Lloyds of London Syndicate; an action in relation to commercial premises now before the Supreme Court (ELB Securities Ltd v Alan Love & Prestwick Hotels Ltd [2015] CSIH 67); a £1.3 million claim against Network Rail; and the defence of a claim by a tenant for damages due to an alleged breach of the lease of commercial premises.

David is also an integral part of BTO’s renowned social housing team through which he acts for a number of registered social landlords who include The Clyde Valley Group, Argyll Community Housing Association and Kingdom Housing Association. Highly regarded by Senior Management teams and housing officers they appreciate that they can delegate day to day case management to him.
