Roddy Thomson joins from Terra Firma Chambers and has been a civil practitioner as solicitor and advocate in litigation for about 30 years.  In that time he has been involved in a wide variety of cases and is ranked in the Chambers UK Guide.

His work has comprised a broad mix of cases including various Fatal Accident and other Statutory Inquiries as well as First and Upper Tier Tax Tribunal work.  He has extensive experience in the conduct of Professional Negligence litigation.  Most frequently this has involved architects, surveyors and solicitors, but also medical negligence claims.  He has dealt with personal injury cases of all kinds and in recent years he has been involved in a variety of disputes relating to land and other property.

Andrew Sutherland, Practice Manager at Arnot Manderson Advocates, said: “We are very pleased indeed to have such an experienced and well respected silk as Roddy on board. 

Roddy will naturally add further strength and depth to our team of Tax and Public Law practitioners.  However whilst the recent focus of his practice has been in these areas we at Arnot Manderson are particularly pleased to be able to offer Roddy for instructions in the fields of Personal Injury, Professional and Clinical Negligence and Property Law where he has an enviable reputation. 

He is also highly experienced in Public and Fatal Accident Inquiries and the stable will benefit from being able to offer such a highly regarded practitioner in this area.

Roddy’s expertise extends across a range of practice areas and this of course fits perfectly with the Full Service nature of our stable.  I am confident that a wide variety of agents and their clients will benefit from having his experience to draw upon.”
