There's no way of doing that. The professional bodies don't keep a record of success rate. In any event it really does r tell you anything as losses can arise for any reason. A deer of authority against you, an unreasonable client who won't compromise, a biased tribunal etc.

It's usually possible to check experience online form a persons profile on the internet but that is usually composed by the barrister themselves.

what about www.legal500.com ? is it telling something ?
what about Grade 2 prosecutor or grade 3 or grade 4 ?

Not about success rate.

Gradings of prosecutors is just about experience not success rate.

Success rate isn't a measure of how good somebody is. An argument can fail, and usually does, for reasons other than the advocate.
