Ampersand has β€˜strength and depth’ across the personal injury and medical negligence space. The senior level, in particular, was bolstered in 2016, when Lisa Henderson QC and Lauren Sutherland QC were appointed to silk.

Arnot Manderson Advocates β€˜has a number of high-quality advocates’ specialising in personal injury matters; medical negligence is also a key area of expertise. Gordon Balfour acted for the Ministry of Defence in Dean Holgate v The Advocate General for Scotland, concerning a friendly fire incident in Afghanistan.

Axiom Advocates is noted for its expertise in clinical negligence. Multiple members of the stable continue to act for the defence in the ongoing multi-party transvaginal mesh litigation for the NHS in Scotland. The caseload also includes involvement in the multiple claims against dentist Alan Morrison, potentially Scotland’s largest mass litigation to date.

In the words of one solicitor, Compass Chambers is β€˜the go to chambers for personal injury and clinical negligence work’; β€˜the strength in depth is absolutely second to none and it is always the first port of call’. The stable continues to feature prominently in the defective vaginal mesh litigation, while fatal accidents and catastrophic injuries are other areas of instruction. In 2016, Steve Love QC took silk and Jillian Martin-Brown was appointed as a summary sheriff.

Practitioners at Westwater Advocates handle a gamut of high-value and complex cases, including catastrophic injuries, employers’ liability and industrial diseases. Andrew Hajducki QC now no longer practises as an advocate.
