Robert Sutherland, Advocate, MCIArb
I am a Scottish lawyer who specialises in appropriate dispute resolution. I also have a keen interest in photography and travel. The photographs on this website showcase some of the places I have visited at home and abroad.
I have been working in property and public law for over twenty years, concentrating on rural, commercial property, conveyancing, local government, and housing matters. I have considerable experience of disputes involving farms, crofts, and other rural property, including agricultural contracts, agricultural subsidies, boundaries, servitudes and rights of way, renewable energy projects, planning and environmental law. I am one of the most frequently instructed counsel in the Scottish Land Court, with many cases reported in the official Scottish Land Court Reports. I am also the author of the Stair Memorial Encyclopaedia title on Housing law; and in 2019 I am preparing a new issue of the Forestry law title. I am a member of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators. I have represented clients in arbitration disputes in Scotland and England concerning agricultural tenancies, livestock and produce. My first appointment as an arbitrator was in 2019. I am also a long-standing member of the Access to Justice Committee of the Law Society of Scotland.
