Why would a solicitor work with a barrister on a family law case?

Is it anachronistic and wasteful?


We take a look at the advantages to both solicitor and client of teamwork. 

Professionals bring different skills to bear in difficult family law cases.

Cost can of course be a determining factor.

Our author, Simon Bruce, also features the views on the subject of counsel Niki Langridge of 36 Family Law, in order to provide objective insight.

The full article will be published in the October issue of Family Law
