As from 1st July 2019 (with an implementation period to January 2020) the Bar Standards Board have implemented mandatory rules on transparency.
These rules require that Dr Powers QC provides the following information to you:
Dr Powers QC does not accept Direct Access instructions. Professional clients may contact him or his chambers to obtain a quotation for his legal services:
Senior Clerk: Clerk Speller:
Dr Powers’s direct Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The most commonly used pricing model for Dr Powers’s legal services is on an hourly rate of £450.00 plus VAT. He practices in common law, particularly in those cases where there are complex issues of medicine or science.
The time scale for doing work depends upon its complexity and urgency. As all his instructions are done by Dr Powers QC himself, completion of them depends upon his work load at the time of instruction and whether or not he is in court but his clerk Greg will be able to provide an indication of timescale on request.
