We are specialist consultants in the law for when the legal issues involved are complex, intricate and so important that the most seasoned expertise in advice and handling is required. This is why Mercantile Barristers is structured to ensure clients’ legal needs are met and suited for a respective barrister upon inquiry. Our consultation process not only gives you direct-access to legal expertise, but also lowers the cost of your legal processes since clients are able to instruct a barrister directly, rather than through a solicitor only.
We do not undertake legal aid work, we do not offer free consultations and we don’t work on a no win, no fee basis.
Chambers was set up by barristers who believe that a different working model from the traditional English chambers is of greater benefit to our clients in today’s fast moving and digital economy.
Mercantile Barristers was established to cater for clients in today’s fast moving digital economy. We minimise the traditional practices and structures that keep the barrister detached from clients and have developed methods that give our clients and their professional advisers direct access to our legal expertise at their convenience.
Our barristers are experienced in written and oral advocacy in a range of practice areas and their core skills are in identifying and presenting the central issues in a case whilst formulating creative profitable solutions for clients.
In contentious cases, our skills are deployed in examining, cross-examining witnesses and providing expert evidence. As such we are able to represent our client’s interests efficiently, advising tactfully and forcefully before any tribunal or court. Our primary focus is to ensure our legal advice is successful for all our clients cases.
Practitioners at Mercantile Barristers have decades of first-hand commercial, professional and legal practice experience. This means that we are often on the same wavelength with our clients on the practical issues causing their legal need and we are able to rapidly grasp the issues at stake.
Our barristers have committed their legal careers to understanding the client first before acting on the client’s instructions. We are dedicated to ensuring all clients receive honest & transparent legal advice in Chambers.
Our approach to legal practice is always to articulate creative and value-adding solutions for clients whilst delivering timely, efficient and affordable professional services. All clients conduct their affairs within a legal context and Mercantile Barristers’ role is to advise on the conduct of their transactions and affairs in ways that avoid conflict and disputes.
However, should a dispute become inevitable, then our prior engagement would have assured that all the necessary precautions have been taken and mitigating steps adopted. Thus, clients will begin any dispute resolution in a strong position to achieve their desired objectives.
Whether by adjudication, arbitration, litigation, members at Mercantile Barristers will adopt a firm, swift and decisive approach to achieve the best possible results for clients within the shortest possible time. We recognise that no two cases are the same, so we will adapt our style to suit the occasion.
