Terms of business
When instructed by a solicitor, our published standard terms of work are the current version of the Combar/CLLS Terms on Payment Basis A. Please download these terms here. We will consider alternative terms of engagement but are not obliged to accept instructions on such terms. It should be noted that we will not necessarily apply any alternative agreed terms to each and every new instruction received in the same matter.
Members of the public who come to us will be sent our standard contract, which covers what we will do for you and what it will cost. Please see the direct access section of this website for more information.
For private cases being managed through solicitors we use the Bar Council’s Standard Contractual Terms for the Supply of Legal Services by Barristers to Authorised Persons 2012 – Annexe T to the Bar Code of Conduct. We accept instructions on the basis of Commercial Bar Association’s Standard terms and conditions (Combar A) unless otherwise agreed.
Unless otherwise agreed, the English courts will have exclusive jurisdiction in relation to any claim, dispute or difference concerning our services or any matter arising from it.
