In every case involving the evidence of witnesses, whether in affidavit form or viva voce, the quality of the evidence from these witnesses will determine the success or otherwise of your case.

Inevitably claims against barristers do happen, they might be allegations of professional misconduct, or negligence, and might be brought by professional bodies or by clients or former clients. Whether upheld or not any claim can involve major financial and reputational risk as well as significant professional stress on barristers. How such claims are addressed and in particular how coverage under professional indemnity insurance will work can have a major bearing on their outcome. Sometimes, particularly at their initial stages barristers may try to handle these on their own without advice, to their detriment.
