Procedures

Upon receipt of instructions a written acknowledgement will be sent by return.

Within 48 hours of receipt of instructions, the papers will be checked by the clerks for deadlines or limitation periods and allocated to the appropriate counsel.

Paperwork will, wherever possible, be returned within 14 days of receipt unless otherwise agreed with instructing solicitors.

The clerks will review all outstanding work on a weekly basis to ensure that deadlines are met and that our barristers do not become overloaded.

Chambers’ billing structure is clear and will always be explained on request before any work is undertaken.

Fee notes are clear and provide all the necessary information for the purposes of assessment or taxation.

All court or diary bookings will be confirmed by letter, email or fax.

Returns are kept to a minimum and instructing solicitors will be informed in the event of any potential problems with a barrister’s diary.

Conferences can be held at solicitors’ offices or client’s addresses when appropriate.

We always endeavour to respond promptly and efficiently to all communications.

Our procedures are constantly under review and will be changed or adapted to ensure the best possible service to our solicitors and lay clients.

We always aim to exceed our clients expectations however should you be unhappy about the service we have a comprehensive complaints policy. If you are not able to download the policy from this link please telephone Alister Williams who will send you our policy and documentation.
