Compass Chambers ranked band 1 by Chambers UK

Compass Chambers has been ranked band 1 as a set in each of its core areas of personal injury, clinical negligence and health & safety in the 2016 edition of the Chambers UK Bar Guide.

Compass is the only set in Scotland ranked as band 1 for personal Injury and health & safety.

A total of 32 individual rankings have been attained by Compass members this year with 20 rankings in personal injury.

The directory comments that “Compass Chambers is widely considered the leading chambers for personal injury work at the Scottish Bar.”

In addition, three members have been recognised as “star individuals” –Robert Milligan QC for personal injury, Peter Gray QC for health & safety and Astrid Smart for clinical negligence.

Compass members are praised for their approachable nature with the directory stating: “You get to enjoy the feeling of working with counsel, rather than having distant relationships with advocates.”

Praise for this friendly approach extends to the clerking team which “stands out from all of the other clerking teams at the Scottish Bar.”

They are praised for being “extremely accommodating and very willing to go the extra mile; a lot more proactive in organising things.”

Compass Chambers practice manager, Gavin Herd, said: “We are delighted with our rankings in this year’s Chambers UK directory.

“It is fantastic to once again be recognised for the ability of our members in each of our core areas and to be the only set with a star individual in each area is also a great achievement.”
