There are a whole host of different reasons why you might be needing to call on the services of a qualified, accredited barrister. From divorce barristers to civil dispute barristers and employment law barristers, hiring a top-class professional to fight your corner is key. But what if the barrister you feel is perfect to use is at the other end of the country?
With video conferencing technology such as Skype, this is no longer a problem. Here are a few reasons why this technology can mean using the barrister you want, rather than the closest:
Removes any location based problems
In the past, if you wanted to use a barrister that was based at the opposite end of the country to you then it would be most inconvenient. It would involve long trips in person whenever any meetings were called for that would be extremely time-consuming and costly.
With video conferencing, this is no longer the case. Technology such as Skype is freely available to most now and means you can use your tablet, mobile phone or laptop to stay in touch with your barrister remotely, wherever you may be located.
Another great bonus of video conferencing is that it gives you a real flexibility when instructing a barrister to act on your behalf, especially if the dispute or court case is prolonged. By using video conferencing to keep in contact with them, you have the flexibility to go about your normal life. If you travel around the country each week with work or have a two-week holiday to go on then staying in touch in this way makes it simple.
Even if you are based close to the barrister you will be using, face to face meetings in person can be tricky to arrange on a regular basis. Fitting a meeting in during the 20 minutes you are free in-between other work pressures is much more possible when you use video conferencing to do it and avoids having to travel to the barrister’s office. This in turn will mean you stay in touch more regularly with your barrister in some cases.
