Transparency

Quartz Barristers has positively embraced the new transparency standards set by the Bar Standards Board (BSB). These new rules are designed to improve the information available to the public before they engage the services of a barrister. They relate to information about the areas of law in which barristers practise, the legal services provided by barristers, what those services cost, and a client’s right to redress.
