I have undertaken the Bar Council’s training course for Direct Access work.
I am pleased to consider instruction from major businesses such as insurance companies, claims management companies or others with a professional infrastructure, and foreign lawyers under the Direct Access scheme.
However I do not generally act for small businesses or members of the public directly.
I am a referral lawyer. I consider that most small businesses and individuals will be better served by a firm of solicitors or costs lawyers, who can offer more support and client care to their owners or individual members of the public.
I am happy to recommend costs lawyers or solicitors, many of whom I have worked closely with over the years and who I have working relationships with.
If you are a major business or foreign lawyer and require more information on the Direct Access scheme, please read this document:
