The Barristers used by Garling & Co Lawyers are those who are tried, trusted, and experienced in Personal Injury Law. Your legal representative will engage or brief the barrister to be utilised in your case and that barrister will act on a no win, no fee costs agreement, like your agreement with Garling & Co. This means that your Barrister, like Garling & Co, will only get paid in the event of the success of your claim.
Barristers can be utilised at any point within a particular claim, but commonly will be involved when the matter is approaching a potential settlement conference or when it has an upcoming hearing or mediation date. Upon their involvement, a brief is provided to the Barrister, which contains all the necessary documents needed for the Barrister to advise and appear on your behalf throughout the matter and the Brief is updated through the course of the matter.
A Barrister provides valuable expert advice to the Lawyers involved in your claim and only serves to help guide and achieve the best possible outcome, especially in complicated personal injury litigation.
