Ampersand: Collaborative Strength

Greater Flexibility and a More Commercial Approach

We recognise that working in the legal profession today demands greater flexibility and a more commercial approach in the way we do business with our clients. That’s why our clerks are also committed to best practice, providing their services to you efficiently, reliably and transparently.

Underpinning all of this remains our belief in the independence and integrity associated with the Scottish Advocate.

Ampersand Advocates

Ampersand has 57 members, (including 23 Queen’s Counsel); many of whom are recognised as leaders in their respective fields.

You can view Counsels' profiles and download their CVs in our members' database. If you would like any advice on selecting an appropriate Advocate for your needs please contact our clerks.

Ampersand Areas of Practice

Ampersand offers an unrivalled strength and depth of Counsel, with members working in a wide variety of practice areas within Scots Law. Ampersand has particular strengths in commercial, planning, public and reparation law. Our members have experience in cases at the European Court of Justice, UK Supreme Court (formerly House of Lords and Privy Council), High Court of Justiciary, Court of Session, Sheriff Courts, Land Court, Public Inquiries, Employment Tribunals (and Appeals), and other UK tribunals.

This breadth of legal expertise means that with Ampersand you can be confident that you will be able to instruct the right Counsel in the vast majority of cases and ensure that you achieve the best outcome for you and your client.

If you would like some assistance in selecting the most appropriate Advocate for your needs please contact our clerks.

Ampersand Academic Links

A commitment to best practice requires a commitment to advancing legal knowledge and understanding. To that end, we have linked up with some of Scotland’s leading academics. We believe that these links will bring real and tangible benefits through broadening legal knowledge within Ampersand and through their participation in our seminars and training. You can view their details on the academic profiles page.
