BarristerSELECT harnesses the experience and knowledge of the barristers’ clerk as the trusted advisor to select the most appropriate barrister for any given brief. As the barristers’ clerk has an intimate knowledge of their barristers’ strengths, interests and abilities.
BarristerSELECT enables a solicitor to select their preferred chambers or barrister, in recognition of post relationship and the solicitor’s experience. Even if they are not yet listed with us, we have an integrated process where the relevant clerk is notified of the brief and allowed to respond separately. The workflow of the solicitor or their client is never disadvantaged.
BarristerSELECT includes an Equitable Briefing option, providing firms with the opportunity to ensure that women barristers are considered. A Equitable Briefing Policy is founded on equity principles and designed to promote opportunities for women at the bar.
