Transparency

Some members of chambers are authorised to accept instructions directly from the public without having to go through another lawyer on what is known as a “Public Access” basis. For more information about Public Access, please see the Public Access Guidance for Lay Clients provided by the Bar Standards Board.

Members of chambers who are so authorised provide one of the Public Access services listed in the Bar Standard Board's price transparency policy statement namely “Financial disputes arising out of divorce”. 

As a general rule we will agree a fixed fee for each separate piece of work the barrister concerned is instructed to undertake. The barrister will not formally accept instructions until you have agreed the fee and we will normally ask for this fee to be paid before the barrister concerned commences work. VAT will be added to the fee (if applicable). 

It is impossible to give guidelines as to fees (whether in the form of ranges or average fees) as every case is unique. However, the fixed prices we seek to agree are generally worked out on the broad basis of an hourly rate which will reflect the seniority of the barrister concerned, the complexity of the case, the client’s budget, and will also take into account an estimate of both the preparation time and the time to be taken in conference/in writing the advice or the estimated length of the court hearing (including travel time if applicable).

The clerks are always available to discuss levels of fees and provide a quotation for legal services on request.
