Do you do public access work?
Yes, we do. In straightforward cases you can ask one of our barristers to advise you and represent you without having to go through a solicitor or other authorised litigator first. This could save you money.
There are some things that a barrister cannot do on your behalf and which you will have to do if you do not have a solicitor. This includes eg filing documents with the court and paying court fees.
Please see our Public Access section on this website for fuller information.
The Bar Standards Board has produced guidance for lay clients on the public access scheme which you can access here.
