Nick Doherty practices from Brudenell Chambers as a sole practitioner. He is also a door tenant at 4, King’s Bench Walk

Through Brudenell Chambers I accept instructions direct from the public in criminal, firearms licensing and other types of regulatory cases such as Health and Safety, explosives licensing and similar areas. I also undertake work at professional disciplinary tribunals. Instructing me on a direct access basis can often be at considerably lower cost than where you also engage a solicitor. A significant proportion of my work is now conducted on this basis and I have become adept at assisting the litigant to prepare their own case. I am always happy to discuss a case on an informal basis to decide whether it is suitable for public access.

When instructed as a direct access barrister I am unable to conduct legal aid work. If you are interested in instructing me in a legal aid case you should ask your solicitor to contact 020 8144 2212 or enquiries@brudenellchambers.com to ascertain my availability. In larger and more complex cases with multiple hearings where Solicitors might prefer to instruct Nick with the support of a leading set of chambers they should contact 4 King’s Bench Walk on 020 7822 7000 or clerks@4kbw.co.uk.
