Whilst in practice, he specialised in capital projects/infrastructure, and spent eight months on secondment to the investment arm of a FTSE 100 company. He also gained experience in commercial property, rural property, and banking. He qualified as a solicitor in Scotland in 2008 and in England and Wales in 2009.
