Who’s Who Legal has bought together four prominent London-based solicitors to discuss what they look for when choosing counsel and recent developments at the UK Bar. David Perkins of JAMS International, Christopher Foster of Herbert Smith Freehills, William Christopher of Pinsent Masons and John Olsen of Edwards Wildman Palmer talk about the key qualities they look for in a barrister, how they decide who to instruct, the importance of the reputation of chambers and the individual and the impact of direct public access and solicitor-advocates on the legal market.
