The market rate for privately funded work undertaken by our junior barristers generally ranges from £50 to £350 per hour, depending on the level of experience and expertise appropriate to the case. Leading counsel’s rates usually start from £350 per hour.
However, it is our experience that clients often prefer certainty in respect of counsel’s fees and an hourly rate may not be appropriate. We are always happy to provide a fee quote for any item of work upon request. Naturally, there would be no charge until the fee is agreed.
When acting under a conditional fee agreement, we do not generally seek any uplift to the base fees and we accept that our fees are sought on a recoverability basis unless we have agreed in advance that payment for certain items remains due even if not recovered from the paying party or if we are instructed on items of work which would not normally be recoverable.
We always look to offer best value to our clients and welcome the opportunity to work to service level agreements and prescribed fee protocols.
We pride ourselves on our realistic, transparent and flexible pricing policy.
