Controlled by you

We recognise that barristers are in charge of their practices and our software is build around that idea. Our systems are designed with you in mind, rather than as a management tool for controlling the work done by employees. We hope that Barristertime will increase your billing, and make you feel good about the time you spend working.

Our goal is to provide high-quality, fairly priced services to barristers. As a small high earning profession, barristers are being overcharged for their IT services. We believe that good quality, bespoke software shouldn't be high priced. Unlike our rivals our prices are published and aren't hidden away in your chambers percentage.
