Chambers update on instructing our barristers during the Covid-19 pandemic
It is Chambers policy to encourage all Counsel to comply fully with advice issued by government and the Bar Standards Board. In particular, we note that there may be situations where professional commitments have to be cancelled or postponed at short notice due to a risk to a barrister's own health, or to that of those close to them or others with whom they will come into contact. We are clear that if a member of Chambers follows this professional guidance, they will not be in breach of their duties to their client. We would ask all our valued clients to bear this in mind when instructing counsel.
