Adrian G Stalker

Adrian was a solicitor in private practice between 1992 and 1999, working in various aspects of civil litigation, but with particular emphasis on pursuer reparation work.

From 1999 to 2006, he was the principal solicitor for Shelter Scotland. He has an expertise in all aspects of Housing Law and mortgage repossessions. He is instructed by housing associations, local authorities and banks, as well as by individual defenders in eviction or mortgage repossession proceedings. His first book, “Evictions in Scotland”, was published by Avizandum in November 2007. The second edition will be published later in 2014. Adrian writes a regular “Housing Law Update” column for SCOLAG. He has also chaired the Government’s Repossession Group, the report of which led to the introduction of the new statutory code for mortgage repossessions of residential properties.

Adrian also has a strong interest in other areas of civil litigation, in particular: property disputes, landlord and tenant, executries, professional negligence (including medical negligence), judicial review, education, adoption, debt recovery and consumer credit. He is regularly instructed in all of these areas.

Adrian has lengthy and extensive experience in the delivery of training. This began during the course of his work at Shelter, and has continued since he called to the Bar. He has delivered training to local bar assocations, to sheriffs, to SLAB, and through organisations such as the Legal Services Agency, and Central Law Training.
