How to instruct a barrister

Do I need a solicitor or a barrister?

What you need to know about instructing a barrister

Many people have found that instructing a barrister at an early stage of a problem can help resolve it efficiently and quickly, often without the need of going anywhere near a court room.

Sometimes the dispute continues and barristers have the advocacy skills needed to represent their client’s best interests. This representation may be in arbitration, mediation, a tribunal or in court.

How do I instruct a barrister like Stewart Patterson?

First and foremost clarify in your own mind the specifics and nature of your problem, and what you would want Stewart to do on your behalf.

Next, telephone or email him at his chambers (use the contact form below if you wish). Tell him the nature of your problem, also that you would like to instruct him directly. He will tell you what to do next. It is that simple. This first stage is free to do.
