Modernising Legal Tradition
Mercantile Barristers is a new type of modern and dynamic commercial barristers’ chambers based in the traditional heart of legal London at Gray’s Inn. We provide complete and full circle expert legal services to businesses, professionals and high net worth individuals.
We are specialist consultants in law for when the legal issues involved are complex, intricate and so important that the most seasoned expertise in advice and handling is required. Barristers are traditionally seen as “stuffy” and “unapproachable” but at Mercantile Barristers our members are modernising legal tradition by refusing to be anything of the kind. They are down-to-earth practical legal experts that are extremely user friendly.
Direct Access Barristers
A change in the law in 2004 allowed barristers who have undertaken additional training to advise clients at first instance without the need for a solicitor. These are known as Direct Access or Public Access Barristers. At Mercantile Barristers, a high proportion of our members have gained additional qualification to undertake both solicitor and barrister work.
