Ampersand’s Advocates have appeared in many of the most significant Scottish and UK cases in recent years and have considerable experience across a wide range of courts: the European Court of Justice, the European Court of Human Rights, UK Supreme Court (formerly House of Lords and Privy Council), the High Court of Justiciary, the Court of Session, Sheriff Courts, Land Court, Public inquiries, Employment Tribunals (and Appeals), and other UK tribunals and in Alternative Dispute Resolution forums.
We were appointed to redesign and build the website and visual identity as part of a rebrand. We redrew a custom ampersand and used it as a visual tool as well as a marque. We modernised the logotype by using Domaine Sans for the brand identity to ensure a modern sophisticated and professional positioning.
