Barristers Fees Collection
Since 2013, a combination of regulatory changes have resulted in barristers commonly contracting with solicitors for the provision of their services and with the COMBAR/CLLS terms having been widely adopted in practice, we can assist Barristers' Chambers in circumstances whereby a firm of solicitors does not pay a barrister's fees.As a Law Society Lexcel accredited firm of solicitors, we offer a first class professional approach to all types of debt recovery and in circumstances where a claim is disputed, our experience as lawyers enables us to identify any issues at an early stage.
Furthermore and unlike a debt collection agency, we can actually issue proceedings in a court of law in the event that a debtor refuses to pay.
How do you charge?Clients often wrongly believe that lawyers only charge by the hour. The latter is not always true and Welbeck Solicitors LLP takes an innovative approach to litigation funding. The vast majority of our work is undertaken through a Damages-Based Agreement (DBA) or Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA). This means that you pay by results and only pay fees if a recovery is made.
In addition where possible Welbeck Solicitors LLP will endeavour to recover our fees and any related disbursements from the debtor or a third party.
