Terms of Service
Zenith Chambers is the Chambers of choice for Local Authorities, City Councils, Government Departments, Insurance companies, Trade Unions and hundreds of well-established firms of solicitors across England and Wales. They choose us for our wide variety of expertise, our depth of experience, our rigorous focus on the client and our reputation for success.
Both the quality of the service we deliver and our internal processes are under constant review. We invite and welcome honest and constructive feedback from our clients and lay clients so that we might better meet their business needs.
From 31st January 2013, Zenith Chambers has operated under the Bar's standard contractual terms (“the standard terms"). Please note that the standard terms are our barristers’ default position and may be varied by specific, written agreement. They apply to all privately funded work where there are no other terms agreed or applicable. The standard terms therefore do not apply to any publicly funded work, CFAs, work undertaken under the terms of tenders or under any other bespoke, written agreement or arrangement.
From 1st January 2018 Zenith Chambers receives private civil instructions in accordance with its updated terms and conditions (“the updated terms”) which can be found here.
These updated terms shall apply to all instructions received on or after 1st January 2018 for civil cases which are agreed to be paid on a private basis. All instructions received prior to the 1st January 2018 will be governed and regulated by Chambers previous terms (“the standard terms”- see above) which can be found here.
Arrangements are in place for a competitive fee-charging structure. Fees are always transparent and agreed wherever possible in advance. For further information about fees for any particular area of legal service, please contact the relevant Senior Clerk who will be pleased to advise you.
