What is ‘Direct Access’ or ‘Public Access’?
Traditionally obtaining the benefit of a Barrister’s advice or representation was only available by going through the offices of a solicitor first. This meant the additional complexity and cost of engaging two lawyers rather than one.
This requirement has now been relaxed so that, in the right circumstances, instructing a solicitor may be unnecessary. The obvious advantage of this is that you can access immediate legal advice from an expert practitioner whilst at the same time saving money by the removal of additional costs.
