“Thanks for taking the time to understand a multi-jurisdictional, potentially statute-barred, complex set of multi-country employment and incentive scheme contracts.
The group appreciated your quick grasp of the situation, probing questions, your written and verbal advice, evaluation of the options and ultimate guidance towards what turned out to be the right solution for us.
Also kudos to James Hart and the Clerks in Chambers who were exceedingly efficient and clear in their communications internally and description of the processes involved.”

What is Public Access?

In July 2004 the Public Access Scheme came into force, which allowed members of the public as well as organisations to instruct a Barrister directly on most legal matters. In the past, it would have been necessary to instruct a Solicitor who would then appoint a Barrister on your behalf. The question you can now ask yourself is “Should I contact a Solicitor or Barrister?”

This allows you to benefit from the savings in time and costs that can come from going direct rather than through an intermediary. Now anyone – individuals, companies, firms etc can instruct a Barrister directly.
