Complete Counsel, which launched in 2015, is an innovative digital based model which enables Barristers to practice as sole practitioners or from existing Chambers, but with appropriate support from experienced experts on a contractual basis.
Claire Labio, Practice Director commented ‘We are approaching our second anniversary and experience has so far shown that if a Barrister does engage and follow the guidance given they will see real growth in terms of practice and cash flow.
‘I was recently asked if Barristers using the service from outside of Liverpool were just ‘Door Tenants’. Traditionally Chambers accepted Barristers on to their door to enhance the offering visually whilst not really having much to do with the every day development of that Barristers practice. We do not use the term ‘Door Tenant’ specifically for that reason. Our Barristers receive one to one personal development whether they are full time or not.’
The two new additions are Tom Goodhead and James Byrne, both practitioners at 9 Gough Square in London. Tom and James were looking for a northern base to complement their southern practices in a way which would help them but would not conflict in relation to their primary tenancy. ‘Tom and James are experienced PI, Clinical Negligence and Product Liability specialists. They recognised that we could offer them solid links and exposure in the North which would in turn increase their practices’.
