The law has changed.
Instead of always having to go through a solicitor to get legal advice or representation, you can now deal with a barrister direct.
So what’s the difference?
A medical analogy might help to explain: a solicitor can be likened to a GP – a professional generalist who is used to dealing with a variety of problems and passing some of them on to more specialised experts.
A barrister is like a consultant – a specialist in one area of the law, with in-depth expertise and experience.
The new regulations allow you to go direct to a specialist barrister without going through a solicitor, thus getting expert advice from the start and saving the cost of the solicitor.
But how do you find the right barrister for your particular circumstances?
