Ross Burrows


Ross was originally a solicitor who transferred to the Bar in 2009. Ross has developed upon key skills in predatory work and has dealt with many high profile and complex cases within the context of criminal law. Ross is well aware of the requirements for core business structures and is an experienced lawyer having built up cases from grass roots level (generally from the police station) through to adopting his own successful style of advocacy within court. Ross practices in all areas of litigation, but specialises in criminal law. Ross is in the Crown Court and other courts across the whole country on a daily basis.

Ross is a door tenant at our Chambers, which means that he operates his practice outside of Chambers, although in order to instruct him you should contact our senior clerk directly who will be able to access Ross’ diary remotely. Ross explores many different aspects within the law and those include running a niche training organisation focusing on public access training for barristers; this makes him a good choice by members of the public to instruct such his services in areas of law that include road traffic, debt recovery, contract disputes, employment as well as general civil and criminal law.

Through the ability and flare that Ross brings to his practice, he was recently voted to join the Access to the Bar Committee as an elected member, run within the Bar Council. Ross now also works in an advisory capacity for the Bar Council to lend support for the future direction of the Bar.

Through the recent changes in such dynamics for barristers, Ross is currently advising various Chambers on procurement structures and assists with relevant policy guidelines to develop tailor-made business models.  Ross is now recognised not just for efficient advocacy, but also for his organised modern business approach to running a successful practice. In many respects this shows that Ross is not just focussed on accomplishing his techniques centred on advocacy, but through creating a structure from grass roots level he then reaps the rewards in the court room.  This makes Ross an obvious choice for clients and individual members of the public who need assistance on preparing a case, advising on a case and also offering confident advocacy in court.
