DX Group in Strategic Agreement with Bar Select

Deal allows access to DX’s extensive database of law firm members.

Iver, United Kingdom, February 10, 2010 --(PR.com)-- DX Group, the UK & Ireland’s leading independent mail, courier and secure logistics company, has entered into a strategic agreement with Bar Select Limited. The deal will see the further promotion of www.barselect.co.uk, the unique barrister comparison web site which is designed for use by legal professionals.

The Bar Select service, brainchild of veteran lawyer Peter Rouse, founder of the Rouse IP firm, will be offered to DX members and other legal professionals. DX, established by the legal community in response to the postal strikes of the 1970s, counts 97 of the top 100 law firms as clients.

In anticipation of regulatory changes allowing greater practice freedoms to barristers, Bar Select was established in July 2009. The new service, which is co-owned by the company behind LEX, will help maximise both barrister and law firm income.

Not only does Bar Select provide a valuable comparison service to the legal profession, it also offers the ability to book barristers that are available.

Andrew Raisbeck, marketing director of DX, said: “As a long-term proponent of the legal services sector we take a close interest in its evolution. We believe Bar Select will be of great value to our members and that we can help the whole sector by further promoting it. Our agreement with Bar Select Ltd will help build market awareness of Bar Select among our members and support the growth of the service.”

Peter Rouse, director of Bar Select, said: “Bar Select aims to become part of the infrastructure of the present and emerging legal services market and our agreement with DX brings that aspiration closer to realisation.”
