Compass Chambers is the only set of advocates in Scotland to specialise in reparation work. We are able to provide both a litigation service as well as more general advice. We encourage instruction in potential litigation at an early stage to seek to limit costs to the clients and ensure settlement on the best terms possible.
Members act for Pursuers/Claimants and Defenders. The wide knowledge and varied experience of members who practice in this area permits for the provision of a high quality, efficient legal service. Our members regularly deliver seminars and talks in all personal injury matters throughout the UK, and we have close connections with Crown Office Chambers in London. We are able to provide advice concerning cross border litigation and damages claims in personal injury.
Members routinely take on speculative and legal aid work in appropriate cases. Instructions are accepted in accordance with the Faculty of Advocates' Direct Access Guidelines.
Compass Chambers encourages the agreement of fees in advance to ensure a fair and transparent provision of legal services. Agreements can be tailored to suit any particular case and can either be on a block fee basis or on an hourly rate.
