Members of Ampersand Advocates are particularly experienced in insolvency matters, acting for all parties in such cases. Of recent note, Timothy Young recently acted for the liquidators in Rowallan Asset Management Limited v Morris & Co, which involved a claim for gratuitous alienation (a transfer under value to dissipate assets) relating to a large agricultural property holding company.

Axiom Advocates has a strong insolvency and company law contingent and is, for some, 'the go-to set when searching for a new advocate' as the set has 'strength throughout its ranks.'

Terra Firma Chambers' company and insolvency team acts for clients in a wide range of corporate law matters including schemes of arrangement, administration petitions and banking business transfers. Of recent note, Fergus Thomson appeared as a led junior for House of Fraser in two Court of Session applications in 2018, regarding a scheme of arrangement and a petition for administration.
