Terms & conditions
From 31 January 2013, the Bar’s Standard Non-Contractual Terms on which barristers offer their services to solicitors (Annexe G1 to the Bar’s Code of Conduct) are no longer deemed to be the applicable terms on which instructions from solicitors are accepted. Nevertheless, for the time being Barristers in our Chambers will continue to accept instructions from solicitors and other authorised persons whose regulator is the Solicitors’ Regulation Authority on the same basis as if those Terms (other than terms relating to the Withdrawal of Credit Scheme) continued to apply, rather than on a contractual basis. However, individual Barristers reserve the right to request and to negotiate for contractual terms where thought appropriate in all the circumstances of a particular case.
