Medical and Regulatory Law Specialist Barristers | England, Wales, UK | London, Manchester & Regional
What is a barrister?
A barrister is a specialist advocate who advises on law, legal procedure and evidence, and appears in courts and tribunals on behalf of lay clients, professional clients and firms. Barristers also undertake drafting of court documents, statements, contracts and deeds.
Some barristers are also qualified litigators, which means they can undertake investigations and compile evidence, files documents with courts and tribunals, just like a solicitor. One principle difference between barristers and solicitors is that barristers handle money via escrow accounts, for added protection of clients monies, whereas solicitors can run client accounts for monies.
There are, in our view, greater safeguards where an escrow account is used, as our clients must formally authorise each payment, so enabling them to do their own checks on where monies are being sent. [Some solicitors do use escrow accounts, too, it should be noted.]
