Terms of Business

New Standard Contractual Terms

From 1 April 2018, Members of Chambers at South Square will consider accepting new instructions under one of the following:

1)  The Commercial Bar Association (COMBAR) and the City of London Law Society (“The COMBAR/CLLS terms”) on Payment Basis A. A copy of which can be found here.

2) The Old Non-Contractual Terms, adapted to reflect the discontinuance of the Withdrawal of Credit Scheme, a copy of which can be found here.

3)  Members of Chambers can also be required (subject to the provisions of the Bar’s Code of Conduct) to accept instructions on the New Standard Conditions, a copy of which can be found here.

It should be noted that the acceptance of instructions on any other basis, other than options 1-3 above, requires the specific written consent of the Member of Chambers concerned and no practice manager or other South Square employee has authority to give that consent on his or her behalf.  In the absence of specific agreement to the contrary, the acceptance of instructions by individual members of chambers will be on COMBAR / CLLS payment basis A.
