New contractual terms
Change in barristers' standard terms of work
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.
