Members of Chambers, as individual lawyers, may only give advice to a particular person on a specific matter or case if instructed to do so by one of the following: a solicitor, a qualified foreign lawyer or a member of a recognised professional body approved by the Bar Council for the purpose of direct professional access work, or a BarDIRECT client.
The information and any commentary on the law contained on this web site are provided free of charge for information purposes only.

(iv) Email Fraud
We are aware of a number of bogus e-mails, letters and faxes which are being received by individuals in many parts of the world, claiming to be from Brick Court Chambers or individuals from Brick Court Chambers, or using the names of individuals from Brick Court Chambers, which indicate that the addressee has won or inherited a substantial sum of money, and ask the recipient for personal information and/or money. These communications are not genuinely from us, and appear to be part of a scam being orchestrated by someone using our name illegally and without authorisation. We have been alerted to many dozens of these. We report them to the police when appropriate and are taking steps to try to stop them. If you have received such a communication, we strongly advise that you just ignore it and do not respond or communicate further with the sender.
