Public Access 

Ms Bullock is authorised for direct access work and accepts instructions from members of the public on a case-by-case basis.  If you are a member of the public, you are strongly encouraged to review the Bar Standards Board’s Public Access Guidance for Lay Clients here https://www.barstandardsboard.org.uk/regulatory-requirements/bsb-handbook/public-access-guidance-for-lay-clients/. This will help you to understand how the Public Access scheme works and explains how you can use it to instruct barristers directly.

Regulatory and Complaints Information

Ms Bullock is regulated by the Bar Standards Board. You can search the Barristers’ Register on the Bar Standards Board’s website: https://www.barstandardsboard.org.uk/regulatory-requirements/the-barristers’-register/. This shows (1) whether a barrister has a current practising certificate, and (2) whether a barrister has any disciplinary findings, which are published on the Bar Standards Board’s website in accordance with their policy. Alternatively, you can contact the Bar Standards Board on 020 7611 1444 to ask about this (or e-mail ContactUs@BarStandardsBoard.org.uk).

Our aim is to give you a good service at all times.  However, if you have a complaint you are invited to let us know as soon as possible by contacting the practice manager either in writing or by telephone.  If a complaint cannot be resolved informally by discussion with the practice manager, a professional or lay client is at liberty to make a formal complaint to the practice manager who will within 28 days and after discussion with the Head of Chambers send a reply.  If the client is not satisfied with the reply, he or she may take his or her complaint to the Legal Ombudsman (LeO) – the independent body which can help you if you have complained to your lawyer and are not happy with their response.

You can write to the Legal Ombudsman (LeO) at:
