He has built up a strong practice in health and safety, trading standards and professional disciplinary work and has also acted in major inquiries and inquests into fatal accidents and workplace negligence.
Kevin McCallum QC is the third scottish QC to join 3PB in the past two years, following personal injury and clinical negligence Silk Angela Graeme QC and commercial litigation and arbitration QC David Parratt QC.
