Standard Contractual Terms Guide

Apex Chambers will be adopting the New Standard Contractual Terms for Barristers from the 31st January 2013.

The new Standard Terms may be used for instructions from all Authorised Persons, which here means all bodies and persons authorised by the Law Society or the SRA under section 18(1)(a)of the Legal Services Act 2007 to carry out reserved legal activities. This includes all practising solicitors but will also include any other bodies that are not solicitors’ practices but which the SRA regulates. The SRA at present licences such bodies and persons on behalf of the Law Society, but does not publish a list of those bodies and persons who are authorised. Click here to download our
