Expanded team taking responsibility for different circuits
Our expanded contract management team is setting up introductory meetings with chambers who have joined the Bar pilot group.
As reported in the last Advocates' Bulletin, there are now five contract managers responsible for different circuits in England and Wales.
And there are now around 250 chambers taking part in the pilot.
Raising issues with Bar Council
Chambers who aren't part of the pilot group, so don't yet have a designated contract manager, can raise issues by emailing the Bar Council (see 'further information' below).
These can then be discussed at our bi-monthly meetings with the Bar Council.
But if the matter is urgent, you can call the contract manager covering the circuit in which your chambers is based:
|Midland||Henry Drake||0121 232 5617|
|Northen||Tracey Courtenay-Williams||Tracey.email@example.com||07827 897 408|
|North-Eastern||Tracey Courtenay-Williams||Tracey.firstname.lastname@example.org||07827 897 408|
| 07764 900 347
0773 907 9153
07720 349 606
|Wales & Chester||Henry Drake||0121 232 5617|
|Western|| Carl Batty
| 07764 900 347
The breakdown of responsibilities outlined above will be reviewed after the introductory meetings have finished.
Among the issues to be considered will be whether, for example, extra chambers can be added.
New area contract manager
Ellis Pinnell has recently been appointed as the area contract manager for the Bar. He will be taking over from Nicola Johanson who originally led the team working on the Bar pilot.
