Having been immersed in a wide range of litigation, dispute resolution and employment issues for more than 25 years, Graham Reid is a hugely experienced court lawyer.
Since qualifying in 1986, he has successfully advised on a wide range of contentious matters, ranging from landmark ‘keep-open’ leasing cases to judicial reviews against the decisions of statutory and public bodies.
As well as regularly working in conjunction with counsel in the Court of Session, Reid has often personally conducted a wide range of litigation in the Sheriff Courts, dealing not only with commercial and contract cases but also property and family matters for individuals as well as businesses. From personal injury and other insurance-related claims to matrimonial disputes, he has a breadth and depth of knowledge that is rare in modern-day legal practice.
Reid also has comprehensive knowledge and experience of employment law. Particularly where the issues have become contentious, from preliminary advice on how to handle difficult employee situations through to the preparation for and conduct of employment tribunals, he will bring the necessary expertise and commitment.
An important and valuable litigation support to all departments in the firm, Reid brings a reasoned and sensible approach to his work and prides himself on the level of client satisfaction following his involvement.
