Axiom welcomes Andrew McWhirter and David Blair


25 June 2021

Axiom Advocates is delighted to welcome 2 new members, Andrew McWhirter and David Blair both calling to the Bar today.

Andrew joins us from Brodies and is looking forward to developing his practice. He has experience in commercial disputes including contractual, construction and professional negligence disputes. However, he also has particular expertise in intellectual property, technology and media law building up a substantial knowledge of the law in relation to intellectual property rights and has advised many well-known brands on infringement, validity and ownership of intellectual property. 

David joins Axiom from Anderson Strathern where he gained considerable experience in the healthcare, public and regulatory fields. His practice will focus on public law matters given his experience of judicial review and statutory appeals to the Court of Session. He maintained a busy practice of medical negligence and assisted with property and construction disputes. David also has a specialist interest in professional disciplinary law.

Kenny McBrearty QC of Axiom Advocates stated that “Axiom is delighted to welcome Andrew and David who both bring different skills to the stable in both the commercial and public law spheres. I wish them every success in their careers and have no doubt they will do well, they are a welcome addition to Axiom”.
