Information Barriers

“The clerking is second to none”
(C&P 2020)

In contrast to solicitors practicing in partnership, different member of chambers can be instructed on opposite sides of a case. Due to the high number of specialist counsel in chambers, our members frequently appear against each other.

We have a rigorous “Information Barriers” policy in place to deal with these circumstances and ensure complete confidentiality. In such cases each party will be allocated a dedicated clerking team to ensure that the separation of advice and representation is supported by full separation in the practical running of the litigation. Our policy fully complies with Bar Council recommendations in this area.
