Ampersand is widely regarded as the Leading Civil Law Set at the Scottish Bar offering unrivalled strength in four specialist Practice Areas. These Practice Areas are Commercial, Planning, Public and Reparation Law (including Professional Liability). Ampersand is also well-placed to deal with cases that raise other civil law issues outwith these four specialist Practice Areas and in matters involving Alternative Dispute Resolution.
Ampersand’s advocates have appeared in some of the most groundbreaking Scottish cases of recent years. Members have experience in the European Court of Justice, the European Court of Human Rights, UK Supreme Court, High Court of Justiciary, Court of Session, Sheriff Courts, Land Court, Public inquiries, Employment Tribunals (and Appeals), and other UK tribunals and in Alternative Dispute Resolution forums.
Ampersand currently has 57 counsel, including 21 Queen’s Counsel, many of whom are recognised as leaders in their respective fields. Ampersand has also established links to some of Scotland’s leading academics.
