About us

Go direct to an expert barrister!

Clerksroom Direct is the only place where members of the public can search for and instruct a barrister online, supported by our dedicated helpline. Our unique, easy-to-use portal offers over 1,000 barristers from more than 211 barrister chambers, regulated by the Bar Standards Board.

Our aim is to provide you with as much information as possible to help you make an informed choice. Obtaining a quote from a barrister is completely free. You only pay for the service if you decide to instruct the barrister directly. 

You are in control every step of the way and you don't pay anything until you wish to proceed. You decide!
