Public Access

The main advantage of the public access is that in certain circumstances it is now possible for barristers to accept work directly from members of the public, organisations and commercial companies without incurring the additional expense of a solicitor. Using a barrister direct will save a significant amount of money and you can instruct a specialist barrister. This whole process is not only cost effective but quite often a quicker process.
