Barrister Professional Negligence
It is an unfortunate fact that sometimes individuals just do not possess the skills they advertise themselves to have. When a person in professional employment presents themselves as a specialist in a field, commits themselves to deliver a service to you as a consumer, then fails to deliver this service to an appropriate standard causing you a significant loss - you should be able to make a claim for professional negligence. There are a number of different employment areas in which professional negligence can occur. One of these areas is law, and it is possible to enter into a specific professional negligence claim against a barrister.
What Is A Barrister?
Most commonly, barristers are hired by solicitors to present a case in court. The solicitor is responsible for a barrister's pay and they will communicate with the barrister regarding the case. The solicitor's client and the barrister will not communicate directly. A barrister speaks on your behalf in court, presents the case to the judge and jury and examines/cross examines witnesses.
Barristers have an in depth knowledge of a particular area of law and it will be this area of law that they give legal advice on, manage cases for and prepare and present arguments in court for. Most barristers are self employed and either work out of their own office, or form chambers with a group of other barristers. Chambers are not legal partnerships; they are a group of barristers which come together to share costs of offices and administration. However some barristers do work for specific organisations or for government departments such as the Crown Prosecution Service. In this case all the legal work they complete will be for this company. Senior barristers may develop legal policy and strategy.
