Michael Mclean Qualifies as a Solicitor Advocate

Michael Mclean, Partner in the Personal Injury team at Jones Whyte, has been granted rights of audience as a Solicitor Advocate. He can now appear on behalf of clients in all civil courts in Scotland including the Court of Session and the UK Supreme Court, as well as the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council.

A Law Society accredited specialist in personal injury, Michael joined the firm in May 2016 .

He graduated from the University of Glasgow in 2005 before undertaking the postgraduate Diploma in Legal Practice at the University of Aberdeen in 2007. After finishing his studies, Michael moved to Edinburgh to undertake his legal traineeship at a well-known personal injury firm, where he remained for 8 years before joining Jones Whyte.

Michael has gained a wide experience of civil court practice and procedure in both the Sheriff Court and Court of Session. He has a particular interest in acting for clients in claims for damages arising either from personal injuries, property damage, or following a breach of contract. Today he heads up our successful Personal Injury team.

Greg Whyte, Managing Partner said: “Congratulations to Michael for taking the next step in his career by qualifying as a Solicitor Advocate. We are all proud of him for achieving this qualification. Michael, along with Deborah Carmichael in our Dispute Resolution team, can now represent our clients at the Higher Courts across Scotland and the UK.

It is hugely rewarding and incredibly important to see our team continuing to develop and progress. As a relatively young firm, we place great emphasis on giving our teams real accountability along with continued training and development, equipping us to succeed and win for our clients.

Trust and good communication are vital when taking a case to court. Unlike barristers and advocates, solicitor advocates do more than just the court-related work. They run the case from start to finish meaning they know the case inside out – carrying out all the necessary investigations, getting involved in all the details and preparing all the paperwork – therefore it is a huge asset to our clients to have solicitor advocates like Michael and Deborah on board.”
