Don’t have a solicitor? Solicitor too expensive? You may not need one. You can take advantage of the new rules and instruct Tanveer directly to save you time and money.
Barristers Direct Access
Many people are unaware that following key changes in the law in 2004, members of the general public seeking legal advice or representation of any kind can now instruct a Barrister directly, without the need to first engage the services of a Solicitor. As a barrister based in London, I can be instructed directly on any matter which falls into my specialist areas. These include:
Business to business fraud
Business to business fraud is hot on the radar of regulatory bodies such as the Serious Fraud Office (SFO. Being investigated by a regulatory body on suspicion of fraud or having a civil claim brought against you can devastate your professional and personal reputation as well as threaten your liberty. The prosecution or claimant often has considerable time to plan their first steps and will use Search Orders and Asset Freezing Orders to intimidate you. With my vast experience in defending fraud cases and supporting those faced with regulatory intervention, I can anticipate and frustrate potential attacks. I am used to working in high-pressure situations and will put in the hours required to protect your best interests and ensure you have a tactical advantage.
Advertising and marketing law and investigations by the Advertising Standards Authority
Being accused of misleading advertising is a serious risk faced by organisations, especially in the sphere of online advertising and influencer marketing. I can provide expert advice, opinion, and representation on complying with advertising regulations, GDPR compliance in direct marketing, and defending accusations of misleading or offensive advertising.
Health & Safety
The fines attached to health and safety prosecutions have rapidly increased over the past two years. In addition, the custodial sentence for gross negligence manslaughter has also become easier for judges to hand down. I can provide first-response assistance should a health and safety incident occur, assist with managing responses to HSE investigators questions and interviews under caution, provide advice on pleas, and ensure you and your organisation receive robust representation if a prosecution is brought.
Professional disciplinary proceedings for accountants, solicitors, and dentists
Tanveer primarily accepts instructions on a private basis; however in limited circumstances he will accept legal aid instructions. Get in touch with Tanveer now for a thorough assessment of your case and your options.
There will generally be a significant saving in cost in instructing a barrister directly under the public access scheme rather than through a solicitor. For a start, you are paying for one lawyer not two. Also, because barristers are independent and therefore generally have fewer overheads than solicitors, their rates are often considerably lower. Public Access work also has the significant benefit of agreeing fixed fees for specific pieces of work, such as an Advice, a conference or a court appearance.
Awards & Associations
Tanveer has received several awards and is associated with many of the top legal institutions.
One question I often get asked is whether a Barrister can be instructed directly, or does one have to go through a Solicitor initially? Contrary to popular...
