Ken graduated in Law from Edinburgh University in 1978, and joined Mitchells Roberton in 2019. Ken was previously a partner for 12 years at Anderson Strathern, and before that he was a partner at Kidstons.
Ken is accredited by The Law Society of Scotland as a specialist in Commercial Leasing. Ken handles commercial property purchases, sales, development, loans, and leases for Scottish and international SME’s, development clients and individual property investors. He also provides legal opinions on commercial property matters for other law firms. Ken has written two legal textbooks: “Commercial Leases in Scotland: A Practitioner’s Guide”, which is now in its third edition (2016), and “Land & Property Development in Scotland – Law and Practice” which was published in August 2017. He also presents seminars for various organisations on commercial property to solicitors and surveyors, and he is senior tutor on the Commercial Conveyancing course in the Law Diploma at Glasgow University.
Ken also holds the STEP Advanced Certificate in Family Business Advising, which is a long winded way of saying that he is qualified to give strategic advice to family businesses.
He is the Scottish member of CLG (Commercial Law Group) which comprises law firms in many European countries as well as USA, South Africa, Asia and Mexico; this group is a valuable resource for clients. Ken is responsible for the group’s marketing and web-site.
Ken is married and has three children and a ridiculously spoiled Labradoodle. In whatever little spare time he has, he enjoys cycling, weight training, writing children’s stories and novels, and piano.
