Nowadays barristers are able to work directly for a far greater cross section of clients. This is especially so for the Tax Bar as a very large proportion of our work comes from sources other than solicitors.
Instructing us is a simple process. Your first contact with Chambers should be the Clerks, where you will find that our experienced clerks will be pleased to discuss how best to deal with your circumstances. If requested (and so long as sufficient information is provided), the clerks will give quotations for fees in advance of work being done.
Fees are calculated case by case, based on the time commitment required of the barrister in question, the complexity of the case and the degree of responsibility involved. More often than not we will offer a fixed or capped fee. Work in relation to litigation is usually charged by reference to an agreed hourly rate.
If you have any queries about our instruction procedure you may find the answers in our FAQ section, otherwise you should feel free to contact the clerks.
