Barristers in chambers are regulated by the Bar Standards Board. You can search the Barristers Register on the Bar Standards Board’s website.
This shows (1) whether a barrister has a current practicing certificate, and (2) whether a barrister has any disciplinary findings, which are published on the Bar Standards Board’s website in accordance with their policy. Alternatively, you can contact the Bar Standards Board on 020 7611 1444 to ask about this (or email ContactUs@BarStandardsBoard.org.uk)
Should you have a complaint or concern you are invited to let us know as soon as possible. In the first instance, please contact our Senior Clerk, Jayne Turner on 0113 2971200 to discuss your complaint on an informal basis.
If you are not satisfied with your call to Chambers, you can lodge a formal complaint in writing. This should be addressed to Jayne Turner, Senior Clerk who will bring it to the attention for the complaint panel headed by David Brooke KC.
A copy of our full complains procedure and timescales involved can be downloaded here. Please note that we are not obliged to deal with complaints that fall outside the time limits that apply to complaints to the Legal Ombudsman, which are set out below.
If you are unhappy with the outcome of the investigation you may complain to the Legal Ombudsman, the independent complaints body for lawyers.
