Scott regularly appears in the Commercial Court, Outer House and Sheriff Court on behalf of banks, contractors, insurers, property companies, professional advisers and insolvency practitioners. He is frequently instructed to draft and present applications in relation to insolvency proceedings in both the Court of Session and Sheriff Court. He has experience of appearing and conducting proceedings in courts and tribunals at all levels.
Prior to calling to the Bar, Scott practiced as a solicitor with two well-known firms specialising in commercial and insurance related litigation.
Scott is a tutor in civil litigation at the University of Glasgow and a member of the Faculty of Advocates’ public communications, assessment and reparation sub-committees.
