Acute attention to details is adopted at every stage of its business, from the acceptance of instructions to the rendering of accounts. It is of great importance to us that our Clerks and Administration team are knowledgeable, approachable, user friendly, clear, efficient and effective.

The team is on hand to advise on the appropriate barrister or, on occasions, team of barristers for every brief, and to provide quick fee estimates for the likely cost of an instruction. Fixed prices can be agreed for all instructions, from short initial advice to lengthy and complex litigation.

Upon receipt of instructions, we timetable paperwork to ensure that clients are aware when advice and drafting will be completed. Expectation management and clarity with both timetables and fees are an area which we consider extremely important.

The clerks can always arrange for the listing of emergency applications whether in the High Court or the County Courts. The team has extensive experience of the procedures for obtaining freezing orders or search and seizure orders in the High Court.

Pallant Chambers welcomes instructions by email and regularly receives and returns completed papers in this form.
