Terms of Use of this Website


Dentists Legal Service (DLS) is regulated by the Bar Standards Board (BSB), the regulator of barristers and other regulated legal entities (firms, partnerships, companies). DLS works to exacting standards and policies, as set out in the BSB Handbook. Each of our barristers, just like the English/Welsh Bar generally, is self-employed. In other words they are wholly independent practitioners, albeit they work under the corporate umbrella of Trident Chambers.
