Working With Us

Our clerking team is one of the most experienced at the Scottish Bar. Any of our clerks will be happy to recommend appropriate advocates, let you know about individuals’ availability and answer your feeing queries.

You can also contact counsel directly using the details on the relevant profile page. Clerks should be contacted for all urgent enquiries.


Fee quotes can be provided and fee agreements negotiated for all potential instructions prior to work being carried out. These are dealt with on a case by case basis. Daily or hourly rates can be provided for both advisory work and court appearances. Our clerks will be happy to discuss instructions for legal aid and speculative work.

Direct Access

Our members may accept instructions directly from individuals, public bodies and a wide range of organisations.
