Contract terms are usually discussed and agreed on a case by case basis. Members of Chambers will also accept instructions under the Standard Contractual Terms for the Supply of Legal Services by Barristers to Authorised Persons 2012 published by the Bar Council, a copy of which can be found here, as required by the Bar Code of Conduct. Contracts governing the services of members of chambers will be subject to English law and the exclusive jurisdiction of the Courts of England and Wales (unless otherwise agreed in writing).
The clerks are very happy to discuss fees including hourly rates and other contract terms in advance. Fee quotations can be obtained for work and time scales can also be agreed.
