Before calling at the bar, Mr Crawford worked as a solicitor at HBM Sayers and Thompsons. During that time, he has gained significant experience in pursuing and defending both high and low value actions in the Court of Session including personal injury actions, credit hire, clinical and professional negligence and judicial expenses disputes. He has also assisted the Faculty’s Free Legal Services Unit in employment law including appearance at tribunals.
Timothy calls to the bar having trained and, thereafter, spent 4 years as a litigation solicitor with McGrigors (latterly Pinsent Masons LLP). As a solicitor, Timothy gained significant experience in all areas of commercial litigation and dispute resolution. He had a particular emphasis on advising on property, commercial contract, company law and insolvency matters.
Timothy was responsible for handling numerous high-value, complex and multi-party disputes, in both the Court of Session and Sheriff Court. He also regularly appeared as a solicitor in the Sheriff Court to conduct both procedural and substantive hearings and presented a number of appeals to the Sheriff Principal.
Lorna Arnot, practice manager of Arnot Manderson Advocates, said “We are delighted to welcome Martin and Timothy to the Stable. Martin’s experience in pursuing and defending actions means he will be highly valued by both solicitors and their clients alike. Timothy’s considerable background in the field of commercial litigation will naturally strengthen our depth in that area. Both additions further enhance our reputation as both the largest and the only full service stable at the Scottish Bar.”
