Arnot Manderson welcomes Gavin Dewar



Arnot Manderson Advocates has this week welcomed Gavin Dewar to the stable.  Gavin called to the Bar in 2013 and since then he has been widely instructed by solicitors across a range of Public Law cases including Judicial Review and Human Rights related cases.  He has gained an enviable reputation in Immigration and Asylum cases as well as in Family Law, Employment Law and Property matters.

Gavin is regularly instructed to appear in the Court of Session, Sheriff Courts and Tribunals.  The bulk of his practice is in judicial review with particular emphasis on Human Rights, Prison law and Immigration.

He has represented young persons at Children’s Hearings and employers in the context of unfair dismissal and disability discrimination claims.  He combines a personable nature with a confident and analytical approach to litigation at all levels.

Andrew Sutherland, Practice Manager at Arnot Manderson Advocates, said “We are delighted to welcome Gavin to the Stable.  His interest in the fields of Public Law and Family Law will naturally strengthen our considerable depth in these areas. 

He brings a strong commitment to Human Rights and Public Law in general, which means that, with his additional interests in a variety of practice areas, he is the perfect fit for our stable. 

Gavin’s arrival further enhances our reputation as the largest full-service stable at the Scottish Bar and I’m confident that a wide range of solicitors and their clients stand to benefit from his availability.”
