Stobart offers pay-as-you-go barristers - but no plans to be ABS

Stobart Barristers, part of the Stobart Group, says it has a panel of over 1,000 barristers, juniors and QCs, across the UK offering businesses and individuals help in all areas of law. It provides a fixed-fee service, through a ‘pay-as-you-go’ model during the litigation process, giving the client control of the process and enabling them to end it after each stage. Stobart’s business model spurns the structures introduced by the Legal Services Act. It is not a ProcureCo and chief executive Trevor Howarth, who is group legal director, said it has no plan to become an alternative business structure.
