Instructing Us

Our barristers accept instructions based on the New Standard Contractual Terms for the Supply of Legal Services by Barristers to Authorised Persons, a full copy of which can be downloaded here. Further, where applicable, barristers follow, as standard, the Conditional Fee Agreement based on the APIL/ PIBA 9 Terms and Conditions which can be downloaded here and in matters where there is Legal Aid funding in place the terms on which instructions are accepted can be found here.

Initial contact concerning instructions and any queries relating to contractual terms should be made in the first instance to Maurice MacSweeney, Chambers Business Development Director.

It is also possible for members of the public to instruct barristers at Doughty Street directly through the Public Access scheme, without having to consult a solicitor.  Please go to our Public Access page for a more complete description of the scheme, to see whether it would be appropriate for you and to find our Public Access contact form.

Chambers has the facility to accept payment quickly and securely through all major payment cards including, Visa Debit and Mastercard Debit
