What exactly is a barrister?

The legal profession in England is divided into two parts: barristers and solicitors. In general, solicitors do transactional work while barristers appear in Court and tribunals and do advisory work of a complex nature.

A barrister is an expert advocate who represents clients and argues their cases, in person, in the courts, tribunals or before an arbitrator or other neutral/panel of neutrals. Barristers also provide specialist legal advice.

Barristers specialise in one or more areas of law and offer a high degree of knowledge, skill and expertise in their fields of practice.

Our barristers are independent sole practitioners and are self-employed. They do not share profits, and are not in partnership with other barristers in chambers or with solicitors or other legal professionals.

Barristers are assisted by a practice management team, sometimes known as clerks. These act like an agents and are the first point of contact for most clients; they book cases in for barristers and they will advise on which barrister is most suitable for your case. They also agree fees with you.
