The clerks at 15 Winckley Square are experienced in assisting clients by providing indications of fee estimates for the legal services they may require.

Any quote will make reference to a particular barrister’s expertise in the area of law you seek representation or advice on. The quote you receive will be based on an hourly rate for that particular barrister plus any VAT to be charged for their services.

The quotation you receive will be based on the information you provide at the time to the clerk and will take into account:

  • How long it will take the barrister to consider the papers provided to them in preparation for advice or a hearing.
  • The anticipated time the matter will take to deal with.
  • Once the barrister is in receipt of any papers, a firm quotation of a fee can then be provided based on the information the barrister has before them.

The Clerks may also be able to provide you with a fixed fee for work subject to the details provided above and in consultation with the barrister you wish to instruct. Chambers endeavour to provide their clients with a timescale as to when they are likely to expect a response to their instructions. On occasion, it may be that the barrister dealing with the matter has had a case overrun or unexpectedly put into court, but the clerks will inform you at the earliest possible opportunity of any difficulty and an indication of when any work can be completed.
