Terms of Bussiness

Instructing Counsel
We aim to provide an efficient yet friendly clerking service and our clerks are always willing to advise on suitability and availability of counsel. We accept instructions by post/DX, fax or email and all briefs and instructions are acknowledged in writing by return. As a matter of course, you will be made aware by the clerk of the likelihood of chosen counsel not being available when bookings are taken. If it is anticipated that chosen counsel will be unavailable for the specified hearing you will be advised at the earliest opportunity and we will offer the broadest range of alternative options possible.

Terms of Business save where expressly agreed, barristers at Linenhall Chambers provide their services on the Standard Conditions of Contract for the Supply of Legal Services by Barristers to Authorised Persons 2012. A copy of those Terms can be found here.
