David’s focus is on our health, regulation and public law practice.
Having trained at Anderson Strathern, David has been developing expertise in complex medical negligence cases, appeals and judicial review. Public protection is at the heart of the work David does and he appears at professional discipline tribunals and committees as well as providing legal advice to professional regulatory and representative bodies.
David enjoys the academic side of the law and keeping on top of legal developments. He has a busy academic career, having published articles in a number of leading legal academic journals, and in 2018 was one of the prize-winners of the UK Association of Disciplinary and Regulatory Lawyer's annual essay competition.
Outside of work, David reveals his less serious side with a successful comedy career. He writes and performs with one of Scotland's leading sketch comedy groups, appears at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and has had work commissioned by the BBC.
