Fraser’s broad and diverse practice involves the resolution of commercial and property disputes and professional negligence claims. He has a particular interest in regulation within the health sector. Working closely with commercial clients and private individuals, his primary aim is to keep them out of court, but where this is not possible or the best strategy, he also has a depth of experience pursuing and defending claims in the Court of Session, sheriff court and Lands Tribunal of Scotland. Fraser’s far reaching experience also includes advising public sector bodies involved in disputes, so he has a deep, innate understanding of the issues that they face.
A natural problem solver who works tirelessly to deliver solutions, Fraser is a keen advocate of alternative dispute resolution, such as mediation, and he is noted for this by Chambers. In addition, Fraser is accredited by the Law Society of Scotland as an Expert Witness.
As head of our Dispute Resolution Department, Fraser holds significant management responsibility across the whole spectrum of contentious practice, in addition to managing a talented team and his own caseload.
Fraser makes the absolute most of his leisure time, especially with his wife and three children. They are a dedicated outdoor family, who love cycling and walking. When time allows, Fraser also enjoys playing golf [badly] and squash [don’t ask]. Despite his limited golf prowess, he recently captained a team of Scottish solicitors who won against their Irish counterparts, although it has taken 14 attempts to achieve this landmark victory.
