Firm profile submitted by Compass Chambers

The Chambers Compass Chambers is a recognised centre of excellence in reparation, professional negligence and regulatory crime litigation. Compass Chambers’ ethos is simple: to demonstrate excellence at all times, working together with clients to achieve the best possible outcome, always. Chambers’ membership, based exclusively on merit, embraces this ethos which is central to their outstanding reputation. Members include some of the most well instructed, and highly regarded counsel at the Scottish Bar and, as a result, have considerable experience in all Scottish courts from the Sheriff Court to the UK Supreme Court. Many of the chambers’ members are on the panels of several leading insurers, publishers and disciplinary bodies. An essential part of the Compass ethos is to seek to give added value at all times. To that end, Compass hosts regular conferences across the country at which the most recent developments in their respective core areas are presented to a wide audience. As an organisation, Compass is at the forefront of innovating in the way in which counsel interact with agents and clients, and aims to offer a commercially sensitive, comprehensive and cost-effective service.
