Financial institutions used to dealing with barristers

  • Most high street banks should be used to dealing with barristers or self-employed individuals.
  • One of the best ways to find a good bank or building society is to speak to other members of chambers and see if they have any recommendations or advice.

The YBC’s Thea Wilson says: “In my experience, only the branches on Fleet Street have any real idea – some of them are fantastic with barristers. But the branches in my home town and the people on the phone never seem to have a clue.”
