Gillian is an Associate within our professional liability team.

Gillian handles professional liability claims on behalf of the Law Society of Scotland's professional indemnity insurers and for insurers of a wide range of other professionals. She deals mainly with the defence of claims on behalf of solicitors but also deals with claims on behalf of accountants, estate managers, surveyors, engineers and other construction professionals.

During her traineeship with BTO, Gillian spent the majority of her time working within the professional liability team and she has practised exclusively in that field since qualifying. Gillian is therefore well placed to deal with the whole range of professional liability claims where appropriate and assists the more senior members of the team with complex cases. She has been involved in the defence of numerous high value court actions against professionals.

Gillian has extensive experience of both Sheriff Court and Court of Session procedure, particularly in respect of cases running under Commercial Procedure, and appears in the Sheriff Court. She is also experienced in the use of mediation, where appropriate.

Gillian studied law on a part time basis at Strathclyde University whilst working as a paralegal in our Insurance department, graduating in 2009.

After Hours

Gillian enjoys spending time with her family and exploring other parts of Scotland.
