How to instruct us
Barristers come together to form a ‘Chambers’ in order to offer a better quality service to clients, this also helps to build expertise in other areas of the law.
Traditionally, barristers work in partnership with solicitors, lawyers and businesses. Also, with new Government legislation the general public can now directly instruct a barrister via Public Access.
What to do next
A good barrister spends a lot of their time in court and preparing cases, they are very intelligent and knowledgeable, while still approachable.
In the first instance, you contact a clerk and explain your requirements and any background history that you might have information for. The clerk will then filter this information and recommend a barrister to provide the expertise for your case.
