Barristers are specialist legal advisers and courtroom advocates.
They are independent, objective and trained to advise clients on the strengths and weaknesses of their case.
They have specialist knowledge and experience in and out of court, which can make a substantial difference to the outcome of a case.
Early advice can often save clients the cost and worry of an unnecessary trial, a high proportion of civil cases are settled out of court, and instructing a barrister greatly strengthens the client’s hand at negotiation. Even at a trial, whether in a civil or criminal court, a well-argued case and good cross-examination will impress a judge and, if relevant, a jury.
In some types of civil case, barristers will only charge for their services if they win the case. Because most barristers operate with low overheads, their rates are very competitive and whether you are legally aided or paying privately, the quality of service is assured.
The Bar Council operates a scheme allowing licensed direct access to barristers.
In many cases, barristers are able to give advice on a case by simply looking at the papers. In more complex matters and in cases going to court, clients will often have a ‘conference’ or consultation with the barrister. This will save costs before instructing a solicitor and know your chances of success.
