Licensed access

The Bar Standards Board now allows organisations or individuals that have an identifiable area of expertise or experience, such as planning consultants, engineers, accountants and surveyors, to be licensed to instruct barristers directly. These individuals or organisations are able to instruct any member of the Bar on behalf of their clients or on their own account.

Most qualified accountants, planners, surveyors, charities are already licensed and will be able to instruct barristers direct. Other professionals can apply to the Bar Standards Board to be licensed to instruct barristers direct. For more information click here.

Barristers at Six Pump Court Chambers regularly undertake work across all of our areas of expertise from licensed access clients. If you would like to contact the clerks to discuss this or instruct a barrister directly please contact the Clerks.
