In-house Counsel

Lawyers working in the legal departments of companies or financial services institutions are often required by their employers or colleagues to provide specialist advice in areas of law outside their primary fields of work. A cost-effective and efficient solution is to instruct a barrister directly.  With lower overheads, barristers can quickly provide the specialist advice required at a lower cost, providing significant value for money.

Our barristers undertake direct instructions for advisory work (pre- and post-charge in criminal cases), the management of internal investigations into possible criminal activity, dawn raids, managing the immediate aftermath and investigation of major workplace accidents, and representation in court and at tribunals, amongst other areas.

If you are an employed lawyer and would like to know more, or make an enquiry about a specific matter, please contact the clerks.
