Barristers' Clerks


A barristers' clerk acts like an agent for barristers. They are familiar with skills, expertise, experience and availability of the barristers on their list and can liaise with solicitors and clients to match you with the best representation for each matter.

Barristers engage clerks to organise their bookings and provide messaging, telephone and accounting services. The clerks have detailed knowledge about the barristers on their list and can provide lawyers and others with information about the availability of barristers as well as advising on the choice of barrister. They also take care of the administrative aspects of engaging counsel.

Other services they provide include:

  • Ongoing education and skills development for their list members
  • Information on court listings
  • Fee negotiations
  • Delivery and collection of briefs
  • Message service
  • Management of members' accounts
  • Certifying of bills of cost
