We have many years experience within the field of Mental Health Law in Scotland with our solicitors having appeared at several hundred Mental Health Tribunals as both solicitor and curator ad litem. This experience has been gained throughout Scotland - with different areas of the country facing their own particular set of challenges dependent on the use of resources by individual NHS Trusts and Local Authorities.
