Solicitor advocacy service
We have an experienced team of court lawyers who regularly appear in court throughout Scotland. The team is led by solicitor advocates Richard McMeeken and Jenny Dickson (both civil and commercial litigators) who appear regularly in the Court of Session and Sheriff Courts advising businesses, the public sector and individuals and families. The wider advocacy team includes solicitors and associates with a wealth of experience in the sheriff courts and in other tribunals.
Our advocacy team will always give you an early case assessment so that you know where you stand and how far to push your case in court. They will be on hand to advise you at all stages of the litigation process and someone will always be available to speak to you about your case when you need it.
More about our service
The advent of specialist courts in the Sheriff Court including the commercial court and the All Scotland Personal Injury Court means that more and more litigation is being done by solicitors and our team is ideally placed to help you with your court action. The introduction of the Sheriff Appeal Court means that high level disputes can be resolved more readily at Sheriff Court level and our solicitor advocates are well-placed to advise you on appeal proceedings.
Our approach to fees
We are aware of the pressure that litigants can feel in relation to fees and tailor our approach to the particular dispute. We deal with some disputes on hourly rates and others on fixed fees. We ensure that you are clear about what you will spend at every stage of the court process and that you get value for money.
