Ewen Roy


Described by the Legal 500 as “very dedicated”, Ewen has earned an enviable reputation as one of Scotland’s leading solicitor advocates, with an impressive track record of consecutive acquittals in High Court trials, including being a key member of the legal team which successfully defended what is now the longest running fraud trial in UK criminal history.

Mentally agile, tactically astute and legally sharp, it’s testament to Ewen’s considerable forensic ability that he is frequently instructed by fellow lawyers, fellow professionals and corporate institutions.

Recent cases have covered a whole range of serious crime, such as attempted murder, rape, drug trafficking, armed robbery and death by dangerous driving. Ewen also recently advised a UK financial institution in connection with a high-profile corporate prosecution.

"I was charged with attempted murder. The solicitor advocate who defended me at trial was Ewen Roy. He was recommended to me by a family friend. I was found not guilty after trial. Ewen’s performance in court was exceptional - so professional and talented at his work . I would rate the quality of representation 10/10 and would recommend Ewen and Adams Whyte to anyone needing a criminal defence lawyer."CW, Broxburn
