I may be able to advise you on your legal rights directly, i.e. without the need to instruct a solicitor. I can prepare documents, including pleadings which set out your case. I can represent you in court, tribunals or mediations. I can negotiate on your behalf.
There are limits on the types of work that I can do as a barrister for you directly. For example, if you have a case that is particularly complex or likely to involve a lot of correspondence, it is likely that a solicitor will also need to be involved.
