Why choose Barrister KnowHow

Expert advice and fast turnaround at the lowest possible cost

Many individuals, whether acting in their own right or on behalf of the company, are more than capable of handling routine aspects of the case themselves, significantly reducing costs in the process.

Do you want to retain as much control and responsibility for your case as possible?

By breaking up and viewing litigation and other legal processes as a series of steps (otherwise known as ‘unbundling’, and more particularly in the US), it is possible to chart the likely progression/course of any such process and, crucially, to distil those areas requiring expertise from those of a more routine or mundane nature.

The extent of Barrister KnowHow involvement is of course subject to the requirements of the individual and the particular circumstances of the case.

Direct access to a barrister is the ideal way to avoid duplicity of costs typically associated with having to instruct a solicitor solely to obtain the advice or assistance of ‘Counsel’.

Barristers are specialists in their particular areas of practice and as sole practitioners are wholly responsible for their own work. Instruct a barrister under the direct access scheme and from day 1 you have expert advice and assistance – no junior or trainee solicitor working on your matter, only later to be approved by a senior fee earner.

Not only that, barristers as sole practitioners typically have significantly lower overheads than solicitors.

At Barrister KnowHow, those overheads have been stripped bare by adopting a virtual office model.

Where possible, the use of email, phone or Skype is encouraged, along with web conferencing and online collaboration. Experience has shown that this approach almost always saves time, money and maximises productivity.

Of course, a face to face meeting can be arranged as and where required although this typically adds to client costs. Barrister KnowHow uses meeting rooms in London, Ealing but provides a flexible service geared to the particular needs of individual clients. Meetings can be arranged with clients at their offices or wherever is convenient.
