Here you can find out about our code of conduct, how our lawyers are regulated and how we comply with these regulations.
Code of conduct
The members of Matrix are barristers trading as sole practitioners and are registered with the Bar Standards Board of England and Wales. They are governed by the Bar Standards Board’s Handbook and Code of Conduct (part 2 of the handbook), which is available here.
The Bar Standards Board Code of Conduct states that a summary of the Diversity Data submitted by the Members of the Workforce must be published on chambers’ website by 31 December 2012 and thereafter every three years. The summary of our 2020 data collection, in accordance with these rules, can be found below and here: Matrix Diversity Data 2020.
Professional Liability Insurance
Most of our members have professional liability insurance provided by the Bar Mutual Fund Limited. The minimum cover which barristers must have is £500,000. Territorial coverage is world-wide, subject to the terms of cover of Bar Mutual, which may be accessed here. The postal address of the Bar Mutual Management Company is 90 Fenchurch Street, London, EC3M 4ST.
