Sheriff appointment for North Strathclyde

24 October 2014

Solicitor Craig Douglas Turnbull has been appointed as a floating sheriff of North Strathclyde, the Scottish Government announced today.

A graduate of the University of Strathclyde, Mr Turnbull qualified as a solicitor in 1988, joining MacRoberts in 1993 and becoming a partner there in 1997. He specialised in commercial and construction disputes, and health and safety and environmental prosecutions. He was appointed as a part-time sheriff in 2011.

Mr Turnbull was appointed by the Queen on the recommendation of the First Minister, who nominated him on the basis of a report by the Judicial Appointments Board for Scotland.
