At Red Lion Chambers, we understand the importance of building long-standing professional relationships. Our tactical knowledge, approachability and expertise mean we exceed expectations and maintain a strong reputation for reliability and good results.

The majority of work carried out by Chambers is referred to us by in-house counsel and solicitors in private practice. Every step of our professional relationships is based upon mutual trust, respect and our proven ability to provide excellent advocacy and advise. Our experienced team work together to support members by promoting the highest professional standards at all times.

We understand the pressures and challenges that solicitors face when managing client expectations in what is a highly competitive marketplace. Known to be a particularly friendly and approachable team of barristers, we work hard to manage these expectations and achieve client satisfaction.

Trust and consistency

We pride ourselves on our ability to attract first-class members, who will help ensure the strongest possible case is put forward for your client.

Chambers’ Practice Management Team will keep you informed at every stage of proceedings. All solicitors working in partnership with us will be aware of what we can deliver and when.

We work closely with solicitors and are keen to share legal knowledge and discuss topical subjects through our in-house seminars.

Fee Structure

We pride ourselves on our transparency and the level of flexibility we offer to our instructing solicitors, which include hourly rates and all-in case fees supported by our contemporaneous work log.

The fees for each matter will be determined by the nature of the case, the level of case complexity and the seniority of the barrister instructed. Generally our barristers will charge an hourly rate for all Preparation and Advisory work.

The fees for each case are assessed individually, it is difficult to indicate the fee level prior to receipt of case papers. But as a guideline, you can expect hourly rates to range from £100 for a Junior tenant and up to £900 per hour for a Senior Silk. Attendance rates would range from £350 for a junior tenant to £3,500 per day for a Senior Queens Counsel.
Fees for an initial conference with a Public Access junior barrister our fees would start from £250 + VAT.
All Members of chambers are registered for VAT therefore all fees quoted will be subject to the addition of VAT.
