Getting together the best legal team is often crucial to success. That means selecting a team that understand a client’s commercial interests and objectives, and that has the specialist expertise and experience to represent those in court, whilst also balancing their duties owed to the court.
In this webinar we will explain the difference between advocates, solicitor advocates and counsel in Scotland, touching on the history of the two branches of the legal profession in Scotland. We will explain how solicitor advocates work in the context of a commercial law firm, and explain how advocates can work most effectively as part of a legal team.
While explaining our view of the pros and cons of each, the speakers will cover how best to instruct a solicitor advocate or advocate and consider the cost effectiveness of each.
This webinar will be of interest to all in-house counsel, director level executives and contract managers.
