Mackinnon Advocates

Mackinnon Advocates is the only group of Advocates (Scottish equivalent of Barristers), based in the City of Glasgow, whilst at the same time retaining a presence in Edinburgh.

We are currently one of the largest stables of the Faculty of Advocates and are increasingly chosen as the most effective source of legal representation in Scotland by solicitors and other professionals from England and Wales as well as by those closer to hand.

As a leading provider of Legal Services in Scotland, Mackinnon Advocates includes some of the best known and highly regarded advocates at all levels of seniority presently in practice. Our clients tell us that what sets Mackinnon Advocates apart from other stables is an innovative approach to serving clients best, which has always been part of our tradition. This has led Mackinnon Advocates to extend beyond the criminal field, where we are rightly regarded as pre-eminent, to include highly regarded practitioners in the Commercial, Family, Employment, Immigration and Regulatory fields. We provide representation for clients in Courts of Law, Tribunals, Hearings and Enquiries at all levels, not just in Glasgow but throughout Scotland and elsewhere in the UK.

Our advocates’ experience and special interests are wide ranging as can be seen from their Areas of Practice on this page and elsewhere on the website.

We accept instructions in both legal aid and private client cases.

Please contact our Practice Manager in the first instance to discuss instructions and prior agreement on fees.
