Fees. Please contact the Trinity clerks to discuss your case and obtain a written quote, which will include VAT. Our fees are flexible and easily explained, they match client budgets. Usually, a fixed fee can be agreed for most work, but only in circumstances where we are fully informed of all of the details about your case, please mention this when you contact us. Occasionally, depending on the seniority of the barrister or the complexity of the case, an agreed hourly rate will be applied to any advisory work (e.g. written or in conference) and representation. The more information that we have about a matter, the easier it is to provide an accurate estimate; in circumstances where sufficient information is available we can estimate and agree fees before any chargeable work is undertaken. We aim to provide you with a fully explained quotation within 14 days of you contacting us with an enquiry. It is our hope that, once you have the quotation, you will be able to instruct your chosen barrister to commence work. You should note that fees should be agreed and paid in advance of any work commencing
There will be occasions when circumstances change. This may because instructions are amended or other reasons arise which change some aspect of the case and the work to be done. We will endeavour to notify clients in advance in circumstances where this may lead to a change in the fees to be charged.
We always seek to ensure that the agreed fees and timescales for providing written advice, drafting paperwork, conferences and representation are adhered to but will notify the client if there is likely to be any change or delay and the reason for that. The most common reasons for a change in pricing are:
- The availability of the appointed barrister, the client or relevant third parties
- The amount of paperwork to be reviewed
- The need for and the process of obtaining additional information and documents
- The approach taken by the other side in the proceedings
- Whether any third party seeks to intervene in the case
- Unforeseen changes made by the court to the venue or the length of a hearing
- Court waiting times
In addition to the fee charged by your chosen barrister there may be additional costs arising but not foreseen at the time we gave you the fee estimate. These may include, but are not limited to:
- Travel and accommodation for the barrister to attend courts away from our location should the venue be changed.
- Secretarial costs including photocopying, postage and couriers.
Where possible if additional costs are identified we will refer them to you for agreement before the additional costs are incurred.
Please contact our clerks to discuss your needs in more detail and find the appropriate barrister for your case.
