Minor amendment to Chambers Standard Terms

Tax Chambers Standard Terms of Work have been amended as follows:

1.     To clarify and make explicit the current position that unencrypted emails may be used between a barrister and their client unless agreed otherwise.

2.     To clarify and make explicit the current position that fees paid in advance belong to the barrister, and are not held on account or on trust for clients.

The Standard Terms are available here.

Anyone wishing to discuss the Chambers Standard Terms should, in the first instance, contact the Senior Clerk, Tony Hall.
