Public Access Barrister

Oliver Peirson

Oliver Peirson is a specialist divorce, family and children barrister who can be instructed under the Direct Public Access Scheme.

Until recently, members of the public only had access to the expertise of a barrister if they instructed a solicitor. That meant paying two lawyers to conduct their case, which could significantly increase their costs. That has now changed. In April 2012, the Bar Council introduced the Public Access Scheme (also known as Direct Access). Now anyone can go directly to an expert barrister without having to involve a solicitor.

I was called to the Bar in 1993, since when I have been practising from Pump Court Chambers, a highly regarded barristers’ chambers with one of the largest specialist expert divorce, family and children teams. I am frequently instructed by solicitors and members of the public to deal with all areas of family law, including cases involving divorce, finance, children, domestic violence and disputes between co-habitees over trusts of land and the ownership of property.
