Erimus Chambers - Public Access (Direct Access Barristers)

Following key changes in the law in 2004, members of the public, professionals and companies can instruct a barrister without the use of a solicitor.

Anyone can now go directly to a barrister without having to involve anyone else (e.g. a solicitor). The barrister's role remains essentially the same as when they are approached by a solicitor or another intermediary. Barristers can advise you on your legal status or rights. Barristers can draft and send documents for you and can represent you in court, tribunals or mediations. Barristers can also negotiate on your behalf and can attend employment or investigative interviews and hearings where appropriate.

There are barristers in our set who have undertaken training in Direct Access and are experts in motoring law, criminal law, family and civil law who can assist with the following:
