Terms of Work

Contractual Terms

Central Court Chambers accepts instructions under The Standard Terms for the Supply of Legal Services by Barristers to Authorised Persons 2012 as referred to in Rule rC30.9c of the BSB Handbook. Should those terms be unacceptable then we are willing to discuss the COMBAR terms in the alternative.

If you have any enquiries or require further information about procedures and routes of access to a barrister, please contact the Central Court Chambers clerking team, or visit the Bar Council Website: https://www.barcouncil.org.uk/instructing-a-barrister/

VAT

Each Barrister is VAT registered and VAT is payable on fees. For further information please contact clerks@centralcourtchambers.com

Complaints

Should you feel that the level of service you have received from a barrister at Central Court Chambers falls short of the expected standard then in the first instance it is suggested that you make a complaint direct to chambers via the contact page. If the response you receive is unsatisfactory or wish that your complaint is reviewed independently then a complaint may be made to the Legal Ombudsman. Details of the complaints procedure may be found here.
