Before joining Abertay as a Professor of Scots Commercial Law, I was Head of the Department of Law at Edinburgh Napier University.

My area of expertise is commercial law, in particular company law, insolvency law and diligence. I regularly speak on these areas around the UK. 

I have written various books and articles on business law, banking law and company law and am one of the authors of Gloag and Henderson's Introduction to The Law of Scotland.

I have also been called on several times to provide legal advice to select committees within the Scottish Parliament. 

I am a qualified solicitor and admitted member of the Society of Writers to the Signet.
