Standard Terms

From 31 January 2013, the basis upon which barristers accept instructions from solicitors has changed.

From that date, barristers must expressly agree with solicitors the terms upon which they perform any work.

Three Raymond Buildings has adopted as its Standard Terms the General Terms produced by the Commercial Bar Association (‘combar’) and the City of London Law Society (the combar / CLLS terms). These terms will apply to commercial and non-commercial matters in which members of Chambers at Three Raymond Buildings are instructed. On receipt of each case the Agreement page will be completed to with the required details including the payment basis to be adopted for that case (see clause 9 of the General Terms).

These will apply to instructions from Solicitors and Authorised Persons who have been authorised by the Law Society or the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA).
