COVID-19 - ARRANGEMENTS FOR SERVICE OF WRITS, MOTIONS & OTHER COURT DOCUMENTS

Arrangements for Service of Writs, Motions & Other Court Documents

placeholder

In light of the current situation, there will be no staff based in the office at Victoria Quay for the next few weeks. Accordingly the Office of the Advocate General is, until further notice, unable to accept service of any writs, motions for specification of documents, other motions and applications or other court documents which would normally be sent by post to the Victoria Quay address.

We will however accept service of all such documents electronically. Please send all communications to DivisionASolicitors@advocategeneral.gov.uk and they will be acknowledged as soon as possible.

Please note this does not supersede any existing agreed electronic service arrangements which may be in place with private practice firms handling UK Government litigation in Scotland.

The arrangements set out in the document relating to service on the service of documents page on this website are superseded meantime.
