Upon accepting instructions our clerks will agree the basis upon which the client is to be charged for the work to be done. In some cases we will charge on an agreed hourly rate, which will be set by reference to the nature of the case and the experience of the barrister instructed.
For advocacy services a brief fee (plus refreshers, where appropriate) will generally be agreed. This will be based on the nature of the case, the likely length of the hearing and the experience of the barrister instructed.
Our clerks appreciate the need to be flexible in their approach to fees and are happy to discuss a wide variety of fee arrangements.
