In 2005 in Agassi v Robinson [2005] EWCA Civ 1507, in the Court of Appeal, Lord Justice Dyson said the following about new arrangements for conduct of litigation:

"It is clear, therefore, that more flexible arrangements for the conduct of litigation have started to be developed. In addition to the two classic arrangements of (i) full representation by solicitor and barrister and (ii) the litigant in person, there are other models.
Examples of these are:
(a) the lay client performing the role of litigator with a directly instructed barrister acting as the advocate (under the Bar's new "public access" arrangements, approved by the Lord Chancellor in 2004); and
(b) lay client as litigator, with licensed professional instructing barrister as advocate..." 

As well as the classic arrangement referred to by Lord Justice Dyson at (i) above we also provide the new flexible arrangements at exemplified at (a) and (b) above.
