An estimate of costs will be given for privately funded work when requested.

Where the brief is for advice/opinion a written reply will be given within 21 days, unless a later date is agreed with the client. If an extension to this time is required, the client will be advised by telephone by the barrister or his clerk and a new reporting date agreed.

The client will be advised promptly of the outcome of court appearances and of the next stage in the case.

A conflict of interest check will be carried out by the Clerks room upon receipt of a brief and alternative arrangements made, including the transfer to another Chambers, if required.

Standard matter fee invoices will be issued promptly after the end of a case or agreed stage within a case. This will usually be within 5 working days.
