Hamish Cameron Blackie
Hamish has worked all his professional career in business litigation. His work involves proceedings in the civil courts and the Employment Tribunal, where he regularly appears as an advocate.
Hamish has been involved in several significant cases, all of which were successful, including:
- Mainmet Holdings PLC v Austin  (Successful defence to allegation of breach of duty of confidentiality)  FSR 538, 544 (Lionel Swift QC)
- UK Safety Group Ltd v Heane 1998] 2 BCLC 208 (Successful defence to breach of restrictive covenant case)

- Transformers & Rectifiers Ltd v Needs Limited  EWHC 269 (TCC) (Successful argument that buyers terms and conditions of business had not been incorporated into a contract of supply)
- Transformers & Rectifiers Ltd v Needs Limited  EWHC 1687 (TCC) (Successful argument that one judge was able to summarily assess costs incurred before another judge at a previous hearing).
Hamish believes the secret to successful litigation is taking time to get to know what is important to clients and their case. He has been doing that since qualification in 1986.
