Confidentiality and Conflicts of Interest
Landmark takes client confidentiality very seriously. Chambers’ barristers and staff will ensure that there is an appropriate degree of separation in place where clients may consider there to be a conflict of interest between those instructed.
Members of Landmark Chambers are all self-employed individuals and are in independent practice at the Bar. Due to the number of specialist counsel in these Chambers, members are often instructed to act on behalf of different parties in the same case. This is normal practice within the English and Welsh Bar. Chambers ‘Confidentiality and Conflicts of Interest Policy’ acts as guidance to those members of Chambers, and their clerks, who are instructed on behalf of different parties in the same case. It also deals with issues arising in relation to client confidentiality under the ‘cab rank rule’.
Once instructed, Landmark will protect the confidentiality of all information relating to any client’s case. If you have any concern that there might be a conflict of interest in relation to your own instructions, please contact Landmark’s Senior Clerk, Jay Fullilove.
