When it comes to engagement with our clients, our focus is on service. We understand the value of doing what we say we will do. We do not over-promise. We stick to deadlines and contacting people when we say we will.
We are authorised to accept instructions as a barrister direct from members of the public (which is known as 'public access' or 'direct access'), so you needn't go to a solicitor first, which can save time and money. Stephen Hines, barrister and owner of CityGate Chambers, has been working in the legal industry for over 15 years, and over 14 years as a court advocate, all of that time dealing with costs disputes. This has given him invaluable experience in relation to dispute resolution, including litigation.
We provide traditional advocacy and litigation services to individuals and organisations (including insurers) to help them resolve a dispute as efficiently as possible without losing sight of either their desired outcomes or the costs being incurred, whether on a direct access (or 'public access') basis, or on instructions from solicitors. This includes advocacy, drafting and advising (in person and by telephone), and work before court proceedings are issued. Stephen Hines, barrister and owner of CityGate Chambers, has been working in the legal industry for over 15 years and has a wealth of positive experience which will be brought to bear in relation to your individual case.
As an alternative to court proceedings, which can often be slow and expensive, we often arrange mediation as a method of attempting to resolve our clients' disputes.
Our services extend beyond those traditionally provided by barristers. We also advise insurers, solicitors, compensators and other organisations on their existing claims handling processes and procedures with a view to streamlining processes to save time and costs.

We also provide procurement services (like auditing and assistance with tenders) to help our clients ensure SLA compliance, and that they get best value during a procurement process.
