Fees – Transparency
Barristers in chambers most often charge fixed fees which are agreed with the solicitor or client before work commences. No additional fees will be charged without prior agreement.
Written advice will be available within 14 days unless otherwise agreed timescales for a case may vary depending on factors such as barristers’ availability, the type and complexity of the case, the other side’s approach and court waiting times.
Our barristers charge fixed fees, which means that we will charge you a set amount of money for the work. When agreeing a fixed fee, we aim to agree a standard fee based on the work required for that type of case, the following factors are taking into consideration: The barristers’ hourly rate, time in reading case papers and preparation, attendance in court and/or conference, complexity, and urgency.
Your fixed fees may vary depending on your needs – for example, your fees may be towards the higher end of the range if you need a more experienced barrister and/or you have a more complex case. If you have a particularly complex case, your fees may also be higher than the estimates below. There may also be additional costs for travel and/or hotel should this be required.
Here we provide estimates based on the ranges of fixed fees for barristers at Octagon Legal. All fees exclude VAT. Some of our barristers are NOT VAT registered, you can see who is and who is not on each barrister’s profile.
