We now publish our standard terms which will be in use from 1st April 2013. This is in response to the further guidance we received about what is, and what is not, permissible. We also received feedback from some clients.
We are also willing to enter into COMBAR terms if requested.
At the end of the day we are willing to consider any variations our clients may have.
The Bar Council and the Law Society have recently issued a joint statement saying they will be working with each other over the coming weeks to produce further standard terms acceptable to both sides. Therefore we will keep this under review.
Note: For the period 1st February 2013 to 31st March 2013 we were operating under the Bar Council's New Standard Contractual Terms for the supply of Legal Services by Barristers to Authorised Persons 2012, at annex T to the Bar Code of Conduct.
