"INSTRUCTIONS FROM SOLICITORS AND OTHER AUTHORISED PERSONS"

In 2013 the Bar Council introduced Standard Conditions of Contract for the Supply of Legal Services by Barristers to Authorised Persons 2012 (the "Bar Council Standard Conditions of Contract").

The Bar Council Standard Conditions of Contract have been drafted so as to be compatible with the insurance cover available to barristers under the Bar Mutual Indemnity Fund scheme.

At Commercial Chambers we accept instructions from solicitors and other "Authorised Persons" (as defined) on the Bar Council Standard Conditions of Contract.

Any proposed amendment to these terms will only be effective if agreed in writing by the individual barrister being instructed.

We are authorised to accept instructions directly from clients under the direct public access scheme. Further information about this scheme can be found on the Bar Council's website which can be accessed by clicking here.

Where we are instructed under the direct public access scheme we will send you a client care letter setting out the terms on which our services are offered under that scheme for your agreement.
