E-Ming is regularly instructed to help resolve commercial disputes for her clients, either by way of negotiation or through litigation. E-Ming is particularly adept at obtaining interim urgent orders from the courts across Scotland in order to protect her clients’ assets and interests swiftly and, where possible, without notice. She has appeared in the Sheriff Courts and in the Court of Session (Outer House, Inner House and also in the Commercial Courts). She has extensive experience in respect of breach of contract claims, major and complex fraud, professional negligence claims, intellectual property disputes and commercial property disputes.
E-Ming’s clients range from major financial institutions and institutional landlords, through to SMEs and individuals. Her caseload is varied but usually involves complex and high value disputes, acting for both pursuers and defenders. Her cases often require the instruction of experts in order to assist the court, whether those experts be from the engineering, scientific or professional fields. She also combines her industry-wide experience in reputation management when advising clients on all aspects of dispute resolution.
