Specialising in all aspects of the law around health and social care, Catriona focuses on public protection through her work in professional discipline and regulation, complex medical negligence cases and adult incapacity. She leads a number of client relationships in key health and public protection areas. These include the Mental Welfare Commission for Scotland, the General Medical Council, the General Dental Council, the General Pharmaceutical Council and the General Teaching Council for Scotland.

Catriona heads the Professional Regulation Team which won Litigation Team of the Year at the 2018 Scottish Legal  Awards. She is the immediate past Chair of the Association of Regulatory & Disciplinary Lawyers. She is dedicated to helping public bodies, education institutions and private clients on a range of adult and child protection matters and advises on public inquiries, governance and reputational issues.

At the heart of our senior management team, Catriona also spearheads our marketing and business development strategy. It’s a role that fits her perfectly, as in her previous career she was a print, radio and television journalist.

When it comes to personal goals, Catriona has the same energy and focus that she brings to her work. A lover of outdoor challenges, she previously completed an ‘epic’ coast to coast journey across Scotland, running, cycling and kayaking from Nairn to Glencoe.
