Chambers success for Axiom Advocates



Axiom Advocates has been ranked as a band 1 set in 12 different practice areas with members receiving an outstanding 119 rankings in the latest Chambers UK rankings.

Axiom has won high praise in the first instance for its core practice areas as “a stable distinguished by its extensive ranks of esteemed public law advocates” and “stands at the forefront of human rights and civil liberties in Scotland. Its members demonstrate excellent capabilities across UK and EU law” and “boasting an unrivalled bench of experienced commercial advocates, Axiom Advocates is widely regarded as the go-to stable for the most complex, high-value and important commercial disputes in Scotland”.

However, Axiom has also been highly recommended in several other areas as a leading stable such as construction, public procurement, product liability and intellectual property.

It “retains its reputation as the pre-eminent restructuring and insolvency stable at the Scottish Bar” and has “a well-earned reputation as the top stable in Scotland for company law matters, and has complementary strengths in restructuring and insolvency work”.

It also provides “the most complete set of professional negligence experts north of the border” and “boasts an impressive bench of medical negligence experts” and “possesses unparalleled depth of experience in the more complex aspects of the Scottish professional regulatory frameworks”.

Kenny McBrearty, QC, director of Axiom Advocates said: “I am delighted that Axiom has once again been recognised as a leading stable in commercial and public law. The fact that individual members have received 119 rankings across such a wide range of practice areas reflects the strength and depth of the membership.

“I am also delighted that our clerking team has been rightly recognised for the high quality and dependable service which they provide.”
