Ts and Cs



Written advice is given in good faith, on the basis of information and material supplied. Every effort is made to ensure that advice is accurate and reliable, but no liability can be accepted for errors or omissions. 

Please note that written advice will will be based on the information supplied and the issues raised.  We normally make no charge for answering follow-up questions;  but  follow-up questions must relate to our written advice and the information on which it was based. 

To put it another way, follow-up questions are not an opportunity to introduce more information and different issues.  It’s therefore very important for clients to be clear at the outset about the information they supply and the issues they wish to raise. 

Andrew  Barsby

Although Andrew Barsby is qualified as a  barrister he is not entitled to practise as a barrister and does not hold a practising  certificate.  He is not subject to many of the rules which regulate practising barristers. 

This limits the services he can provide.  He cannot exercise rights of audience in the law courts. People would have only limited rights to complain about him to anyone else.

The Legal Ombudsman, which can adjudicate on complaints about poor service by practising barristers, cannot consider any complaint against him.  However, people can complain to the Bar Standards Board.

He is  not covered by professional indemnity insurance.
