Welcome to Brief A Barrister Direct

In the past it would have been necessary to instruct a solicitor to appoint a barrister on behalf of a client. However, in July 2004 the Direct Access Scheme came into force, which allowed the Public, as well as organisations, to instruct a barrister direct on most legal matters. The question you can now ask yourself is ‘Should I contact a solicitor or a barrister?’

By instructing a barrister at Brief A Barrister Direct, clients can make significant savings and also feel, through direct contact, that they have more involvement and control over their own case.

Barristers are not permitted to offer some of the services provided by solicitors, so it is their duty to advise a client to instruct a solicitor, should it be in their best interest. Our Areas of Practice, below, shows the wide range of expertise undertaken by our barristers who offer a professional, experienced and personal service.
