Brackets are only ever used in broadcast writing to surround a pronunciation.

Subordinate expressions are seldom used. If you remember to write concisely and in active voice, you should not have any problems (or any floating words surrounded by commas) “They say the prosecution has a strong case …” not “The prosecution, they say, has a strong case …”.
