Solicitor Duncan Burd of Scotland; ethical troll


The Law Society presented Duncan McKinnon Burd with a law license in 1973 after he graduated from the University of Glasgow School of Law.


The Scottish Solicitors’ Discipline Tribunal found Duncan guilty of the following misconduct.

  • Submitted accounts to the Scottish Legal Aid Board (SLAB) which included outlays which were unrestricted for alcoholic beverages and food for others in breach of Rule B1.2 of the Law Society of Scotland Practice Rules, Article 3 of the Criminal Code of Conduct
  • Failed to communicate effectively with SLAB in breach of the Solicitor Rules
  • Failed to cooperate with ethics investigators (Screw you, said Duncan!)

As a direct consequence of his misconduct, the enablers for Solicitor Misfits sitting on the Discipline Tribunal punished Duncan by gifting him with a complimentary censure and imposed a fine of £5,000.


As we speak (ca. August 2021), Duncan practices his so-called practice of law with Anderson MacArthur Limited at Somerled Square, Portree, Isle of Skye in Edinburgh, Scotland.
