Laurence Kennedy Arbitrator Edinburgh

Welcome to my website. This site gives information about my work as an Advocate and my role as an accredited Arbitrator.

I was a court solicitor for five years before retraining as an Advocate in 2000. Since then I have maintained a busy court practice based on repeat instructions from a discrete group of instructing solicitors.

My day to day caseload focuses on property, commercial, partnership and contract disputes along with professional negligence and personal injury cases.

I was recommended in Legal 500 for four consecutive years for my expertise in boundary and other title disputes.

I have particular experience in areas of law affecting the media such as defamation, contempt of court and copyright. I was engaged for a number of years as a shift lawyer for several national newspapers where I gave regular pre-publication advice.

Since 2013 I have been sitting as a part time tribunal judge. I have also completed professional arbitration training and accreditation. This allows me to use my judicial decision making skills to resolve or decide a wide range of legal disputes falling within my broad field of expertise.

If you are interested in instructing me as an Advocate or appointing me as Arbitrator, please get in touch. I would be pleased to provide more information and, if necessary, guidance on the steps to be taken. My contact details can be found here.
