Gerald's practice focuses principally on high end personal injuries and professional negligence. He is regularly instructed in substantial personal injury litigations involving claims of traumatic brain injury and cervical spinal injury. A significant workload relates to commercial disputes arising out of matters such as solicitor and accountant/auditor negligence.
Gerald has acquired experience in all aspects of advocacy throughout his career, which includes service as an Advocate Depute (2001–2003). Disputes of all sorts come under Gerald's remit; generally he is instructed in matters where a robust approach is called for and attention to detail is a prerequisite for presentation of the case.
