The benefits of using a barrister
Barristers provide clients with high quality legal advice and expert advocacy. You can choose the barrister you want for your case or our clerks will help you work out who will be most suitable. You do not have to go through an intermediary to instruct a barrister.
Because barristers are sole practitioners in independent practice they generally have low overheads. This means that they can provide a high quality service at very competitive rates.
International lawyers and clients can use barristers in multi-jurisdictional matters and cross border cases where there is a connection to England or where the barrister has rights of audience in the relevant jurisdiction.
As English law is often selected as the preferred law for dealing with international contract disputes, English barristers can offer significant expertise in international disputes, as legal representatives on behalf of the client or acting in a quasi-judicial capacity as an arbitrator or adjudicator.
As independent self-employed practitioners barristers are flexible in their working arrangements. They can be seconded to your office to provide specialist support when you need it or they can work with you as part of your team on major cases and contracts.
Unlike in law firms, barristers do not have a fee structure imposed on them. This means that fee arrangements can be tailored to your needs.
