Biography

Karina is a partner who specialises in defending a wide range of claims for various international and UK insurers along with large self insured companies. She is now responsible, under BTO partner Stephen Bryceland, for the supervision and management of one of the firm's largest teams of solicitors and claims handlers who deal with the defence of high volume reparation claims.

She has significant experience of claims concerning public, employers' and road traffic liability in the Court of Session and Sheriff Court. As such, she is well versed in the liability issues arising from each.

Karina has a volume of experience appearing in the Sheriff Court at opposed procedural hearings and also at proof (trial). She also has a detailed knowledge of Court of Session procedure gleaned from her extensive caseload and a year specialising in coordinating the firm's Court of Session cases at BTO's Edinburgh office. Karina fully understands the tactical and economic advantage of early disclosure and settlement but is comfortable running cases all the way to proof where issues of principle or value dictate it.

“The level of service has always been excellent, with properly experienced solicitors dealing with appropriate cases" Legal 500
