Year of Call 2008        

Craig has a busy personal injury practice in the Court of Session. He mostly acts for insurance companies, local authorities and self-insuring businesses in employer's liability claims and road traffic accident claims. He has particular expertise in defending fraudulent claims.

In June 2016, Craig successfully defended a civil jury trial in which a pedestrian claimant was struck by a car. Contributory negligence was found at 85%, one of the highest findings in recent years. His success before the jury followed his prosecution of a number of trials in the High Court of Justiciary since his appointment as Advocate Depute ad hoc in July 2015.
