We are often asked by our client if a barrister will be needed to assist with their case.
Barristers have a number of roles. Primarily, they appear in court and are required to ask questions and address the judge. They specialise in courtroom procedures and cross-examination techniques.
Barristers can also assist by providing an independent opinion or attend a pretrial conference.
Barristers charge additional and separate fees.
There are a number of cases where a barrister will be needed and this will always be discussed with a client.
There may be some complexities with a claim which requires assistance by a barrister.
If your case proceeds to trial before a judge, we would always brief a barrister to attend court on your behalf.
