The main advantage direct access is that it could potentially save you money, since you would be paying for a barrister only instead of a barrister and a solicitor. However, although the barrister would be able to deal with many aspects of the case, you may need to do some of the work yourself, such as filing documents with the court, unless the barrister is also authorised to conduct litigation on your behalf.
In some cases, the barrister may recommend that you instruct a solicitor because of the complexity of the case or because you may need more assistance than the barrister alone can provide, for instance if there is extensive and complex paperwork to prepare.
