What are the ADVantages?

In the higher courts in Scotland, only advocates or solicitor advocates can appear.

BTO’s solicitor advocates:  

  • Can and do appear regularly on their own without needing to have instructing solicitors in attendance, avoiding duplication of cost.
  • Do not charge disappointment fees.
  • Charge only for time spent.

Other ADVantages  include:

  • You can speak directly to the person who will be conducting and presenting your case in court.
  • Our solicitor advocates take an active role in the negotiation and settlement of cases.
  • Consistency - We endeavour to run with the same team throughout a case.
  • You will have a better control over all aspects of the case, including costs.
  • A hands-on approach gives us a greater understanding of your aspirations. We will drive the litigation to a satisfactory conclusion that reflects your commercial objectives.
