Tim Young’s practice focuses on commercial and public law disputes. Since calling to the Bar in 2013, he has quickly developed a busy and wide-ranging practice in many areas of commercial law including commercial contract disputes (particularly construction and IT contracts), trusts, property (including agricultural and crofting matters), banking, insolvency, and intellectual property. He is regularly instructed in complex and high profile litigations in these areas, with senior counsel and alone. He routinely appears in the Court of Session, Sheriff Court, Scottish Land Court, and Lands Tribunal for Scotland. Tim is also a Standing Junior Counsel to the Scottish Government.

He has, also, developed a broad experience of judicial review and statutory appeals in public and administrative law matters. He has particular experience of public procurement disputes and professional discipline matters. As well as appearing in Court, he has appeared in a wide variety of tribunals, committees, and disciplinary hearings.

Prior to calling to the Bar, Tim was a solicitor at a large commercial law firm. He graduated with a first class honours from the University of Strathclyde. He has, also, maintained links with academia through tutoring Business Entities and Constitutional Law at both the University of Edinburgh and Napier University, and as an external examiner at Robert Gordon University. In addition, Tim is a contributing editor for the Companies Law (reissue) volume of The Laws of Scotland: Stair Memorial Encyclopaedia, and is the Deputy Editor of Session Cases.
