Axiom welcomes new member Elisabeth Roxburgh


07 June 2013

Axiom Advocates is delighted to welcome Elisabeth Roxburgh, having called to the bar on Friday 7th June. 

Elisabeth called to the Bar in 2013 after 5 years as a litigation solicitor with one of Scotland's large commercial law firms.

As a solicitor, Elisabeth practised predominantly in commercial litigation with particular emphasis on commercial contracts and finance and insolvency.  She gained the Insolvency Practitioners Association Certificate of Proficiency in Insolvency in 2008 and has provided advice on all aspects of insolvency to a variety of clients. This included acting regularly for insolvency practitioners and banks.  Her work for banking clients ranged from providing advice on their contractual agreements to advising on complaints received and options for debt recovery. She has also advised on directors’ duties, shareholder disputes and landlord and tenant issues.

Elisabeth has experience in acting for public bodies. During her time in practice, she was part of the team that advised HMRC and the UK Border Agency in Scotland.  She also advised the Insolvency Service on company director disqualifications and public interest winding up proceedings.

Since 2011, Elisabeth has taught seminars on Accounts, Audit and Distributions and Disqualification of Company Directors on the Company Honours course at the University of Edinburgh.

Elisabeth was awarded the Faculty of Advocates’ Lord Reid Scholarship for 2012/2013.
