  • Does this mean we are going to see the end of solicitors freedom to instruct barristerson behalf of their clients and the courting of solicitors by barristers clerks that goes with it?

  • Unlikely. There will still be a large amount of courting by clerks - solicitors continue to provide the stalwart of work for the Bar

  • Many barristers are choosing NOT to take instructions directly from clients as they view this as they appreciate receiving full but concise instructions from solicitors - several chambers consider direct instructions involve too much of an admin burden.

  • Some sets are choosing not to take direct instructions, but others are using direct access to flex their muscles. Solicitors are starting to approach them for referrals, there are more firms doing litigation but still the same number of barristers working on those cases. Is this the beginning of a major power shift?

  • What about congratulating Hardwicke on their acheivement and showing most of the rest of the Bar where it's all going and how to do it?
