Brings common sense and a ‘can do’ attitude to cases.

Graeme is an experienced commercial litigator, with a particular emphasis on commercial contracts, property and professional negligence. He was a solicitor in private practice for almost 10 years (Steedman Ramage and Brodies) and summer 2018 marks 15 years at the Bar. He also has a public law practice, having been a standing junior to the Scottish Government (2005-11) and regularly appearing in extradition cases on behalf of the Lord Advocate (including 2 recent Supreme Court appeals). As well as the high quality advocacy skills to be expected of a senior junior used to appearing regularly in court, he brings common sense and a ‘can do’ attitude to cases. Agents admire his intellectual rigour, an ability to focus on the issues which really matter in a case and a determination to achieve the best result for the client. Graeme makes regular appearances in Proofs, Debates and Appeals at Sheriff Courts and the Court of Session.
