Public Access

Barristers who are registered under the Public Access rules may accept instructions from lay clients directly, rather than being instructed by a solicitor, accountant, foreign lawyer or other professional advisor in appropriate circumstances.

Please feel free to contact us through the clerks to discuss whether Public Access is appropriate or for referral to a solicitor or other advisor if necessary.  For more information on Public Access, visit the Bar Standards Board website here.
