Public Access

Thanks to the Public Access Scheme, members of the public needing legal advice can now instruct a barrister directly.  If you are a business owner or director, you might need to respond to a claim from an employee (say for discrimination, unfair or wrongful dismissal or an industrial relations issue), or you might have a commercial dispute.  If you are an employee, you may want to bring a claim against your employer.

By instructing a barrister directly you can be confident of receiving the very best specialist legal advice at a lower cost.

Old Square Chambers has a team of expert public access barristers in employment, discrimination and commercial disputes. By expert we mean people who specialise in these areas and are up to speed on every aspect of case law and the latest legal developments. They can give you a speedy and honest overview of your case plus sensible and pragmatic advice. As well as being professional, you’ll also find us personable and approachable.

If you need legal advice in any of these areas please call one of our clerks and they will listen to your case (our clerking team is trained to ask the right questions and your information is handled with sensitivity and in complete confidence), suggest the best barrister for you and talk you through the next steps.  Please complete the form below and email it to publicaccess@oldsquare.co.uk and we’ll get back to you.

Please note, any information you supply to us by email or the aforementioned form will be treated in confidence and in accordance with our Privacy Policy. Should you have any queries or concerns as to how we may use, store or retain your data, please do contact our Chambers Director directly on gdpr@oldsquare.co.uk or speak to a member of the clerking team.

Either way we would welcome an opportunity to advise you.
