Recommendations in Independent Legal Directories

Royal Court of Justice

The guide explains that because there are significant restrictions on how barristers are permitted to advertise themselves, it can be difficult to get objective information about your legal team.  The well-known independent legal ‘directories’ are useful in providing an unbiased view of a barrister.

Among the most well known national directories are Chambers & Partners, and the Legal 500. The most recent editions of these directories have described Julian as follows:

Chambers UK 2013

In the 2013 edition of Chambers and Partners, Julian is listed at the top of the band one recommended barristers and described as “highly regarded by instructing solicitors, who enjoy working with “a barrister who gives you confidence as you know he is prepared to take on complex issues.” He is “an excellent advocate” who focuses his practice on high-value catastrophic injury claims. “

“He is not afraid to go where others fear to tread and clients love his have-a-go approach.”
