Kirsteen has wide-ranging experience of handling litigation for businesses and individuals, not only at the Sheriff Courts and the Court of Session but also the Supreme Court of the UK.
Described in the Legal 500 as 'friendly and knowledgeable', she advises business and personal clients daily, on litigation issues and remedies arising out of a range of commercial contracts.
Kirsteen has a wealth of experience in debt recovery actions, including protective diligence and enforcement action, both in Scotland and in other jurisdictions.
Kirsteen regularly acts for Trustees under Trust Deeds and Sequestrations, Receivers, Administrators and Liquidators. She holds the Certificate of Proficiency in Insolvency (Scotland) qualification, from the Insolvency Practitioners’ Association.

She also enjoys socialising, particularly eating out and trying new bars and restaurants, and travelling, especially city breaks.
