Ali-at-deskThe Public Access Scheme avoids duplication of legal instructions and meetings, thus saving you valuable time and money.

Alistair Mitchell has taken instructions helping individuals and businesses under the Scheme for the last decade providing:

  • Legal representation, drafting of documents and advice
  • You with a straightforward contract to keep legal costs under control at all times
  • For a one-off fee or hourly rates – payments all agreed in advance with you.

Traditionally a barrister could only be hired via a solicitor. Since the inception of the Public Access Scheme, in 2004, barrister Alistair Mitchell has been qualified to accept instructions directly from the public and businesses. This arrangement offers considerable savings to clients, as they no longer have to pay additional solicitor’s fees.

49 Chambers serves courts and tribunals throughout the West Midlands, Shropshire, Worcestershire and Gloucestershire particularly Worcester, Hereford, Shrewsbury, Telford, Kidderminster, Birmingham, Wolverhampton, Stafford and Gloucester. Other courts throughout England and Wales by arrangement.
