Clerks

Working with our clients

We aim to provide the highest possible service to our clients. Friendly and approachable, our experienced team is always available to help advise you on your choice of barrister.

Years of experience mean we are intimately aware of the needs of solicitors and the workings of the Court and have a very strong and well-established links with the Court listing offices.

We listen to our clients and we know how important it is for papers and telephone calls to be returned promptly. Confidentiality is of the utmost importance and we have procedures in place to ensure that it is maintained. We work hard to keep you informed continually. We actively encourage feedback from our clients as we strive to provide an excellent service.

Barrister members offer their services in accordance with the Bar Standards Code of Conduct.

The Bar Council has abolished the default Terms of Work and Withdrawal of Credit Scheme on which barristers offered their services to solicitors, and replaced them with new contractual terms of work.

From 31 January 2013, in relation to any new instructions members of 5RB will be offering their services to clients on the new Standard Conditions of Contract for the Supply of Legal Services by Barristers to Authorised Persons 2012.  We do not foresee this changing our relationship with our clients, but if there is anything you wish to discuss, please contact us.

The Clerking Teem
“I believe two of the most important factors I look for in my dealings with clerks is responsiveness and commerciality in fees.  I believe that all the clerks that I have dealt with at 5RB have these two qualities in spades.”
