    Advocacy Unit

    Our in-house Advocacy Unit is the largest in Scotland, with eighteen fully qualified solicitor advocates, who provide advice and representation to clients of Simpson & Marwick.

    Leading the Way

    The unit allows a seamless service between solicitor and advocate, producing better results for our clients and saving them time and money.

    We also accept instructions from other firms and in-house legal teams, both for professional advice and representation in the highest courts: the Court of Session, High Court of Justiciary, House of Lords and the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council, as well as the Sheriff Courts.

    In employment matters we appear in employment tribunal hearings and employment appeal tribunals throughout the United Kingdom.

    We are also able to assist with alternative dispute resolution and are well versed in appearing on behalf of clients at arbitrations, adjudications and mediations.
