Our fees will typically be structured on the following bases:
Our clerks will advise you of the hourly rate applicable to any piece of work and this will be agreed in advance taking into account the nature of the case and its complexity, and the experience of the barrister instructed.
Brief and Refresher Fees for Hearings
Brief and refresher fees apply where court, tribunal or ADR work is required.
A brief fee would usually include all trial preparation, a pre-trial conference (if needed), and the fee for the first day spent in court and any work undertaken during the course of a trial that’s not covered by the refresher fees.
Refresher fees (or daily rate) cover each subsequent day spent at the hearing.
Brief fees and refresher fees are assessed and agreed taking into account the nature of the case and its legal and factual complexities, and the experience and standing of the specialist barrister instructed.
