  Public Access  

The Bar Council have now introduced new Public Access Rules allowing direct access to services provided by qualified barristers. Barristers are now in a position to offer their services directly to the public without the need to use a solicitor as an intermediary. This is known at the Direct Public Access Scheme. The Public Access scheme is suitable to individual and corporate clients, entrepreneurs, estate agents, professionals and charitable and non-governmental organisations.

Under the new Public Access Rules, any individuals or businesses can now directly instruct Anis Rahman OBE, an experienced Public Access Barrister for specialist, straightforward advice and representation at Courts and Tribunals on a fixed fee basis. The scheme represents savings for clients and companies who do not require a solicitor in the first place. It is now possible to resolve a legal matter or make a claim by instructing a barrister directly therefore making significant savings.
