Licensed Access


Members of Chambers accept instructions on a Licensed Access basis. The range of work undertaken by Chambers licenced access barristers includes all the areas identified by each Member of Chambers.

Licensed Access instructions undertaken by Members of Chambers have included the following areas of work:

  • Personal injury for claimants and defendants
  • Civil claims for assault
  • Employment disputes on behalf of claimants and respondents
  • Employment termination negotiation and agreements
  • Discrimination
  • Contractual & commercial disputes
  • Defamation
  • Debt recovery
  • Company & shareholder disputes
  • Professional negligence
  • Insurance terms and coverage disputes
  • References to Ombudsmen
  • Civil claims appeals
  • Criminal appeals
  • Employment appeals
  • Academic appeals

Licensed Access applies where organisations or individuals that have an identifiable area of expertise or experience and have applied to the Bar Standards Board to be licensed to instruct barristers directly. The license holder may instruct any Member of Chambers for advice, and in some circumstances representation, on their own behalf or another’s behalf in the specialist area.
