In House Lawyers
Increasingly, members of List G Barristers are being contacted and then briefed directly by in-house corporate counsel. We encourage this trend.
There are distinct advantages for corporate counsel choosing to brief a barrister directly. Whether your company requires the services of counsel for pre-litigation advice, arbitration or other ADR representation, or for appearance in court, the early and direct involvement of a barrister can save time and money in the long run. Your company may not have the staff, expertise or facilities to run a large proceeding through to its end, however, timely advice on legal and procedural issues can help to steer you in the right direction. A barrister can help you to navigate the litigation landscape effectively and make informed decisions at the earliest opportunity. The advice provided by List G Barristers' members is readily available and their commercial expertise is not only of the highest quality but is practical, usable and strategic. Their familiarity with the courts and tribunals then adds further value. Our members, both Junior and Silk, are ideally placed to provide these services.
The Clerking service at List G Barristers can assist you with the briefing process. Our Clerking team, led by CEO Jane King, are all experienced former solicitors who have the expertise to provide appropriate advice and to select the barrister that your matter requires. Our Clerks understand that you will often need a quick response and can provide key information on members, their expertise and skills, their rates and availability as a matter of priority. Much of this information is also set out in easily accessible form on this site.
List G Barristers welcomes all enquiries about the direct briefing of our members by corporate counsel. We will also provide you and your team with education in direct briefing, either individually in response to your specific queries, or through skill development workshops and presentations by our members.
