Terms of Business

We offer our services on the basis of agreed standard Terms of Business. These Terms of Business include the option of Time & Complexity billing. This form of alternative legal fee billing was developed in 2008 and calculates legal fees based on the type of work, its complexity and the notice given to complete the task. Time & Complexity billing was first published as an article by Iain Sheridan in New Law Journal on 6 June 2008. We offer both traditional hourly billing and Time & Complexity billing.

For a copy of our standard Terms of Business, please email clerks@bigbenlaw.com.

We also work under other contractual terms, including the new standard terms prepared by the Bar Council and the specimen terms negotiated between the Commercial Bar Association and the City of London Law Society. Please note that this does not apply to direct Public Access instructions or work subject to a Conditional Fee Agreement.

We welcome any feedback from our clients. Feedback or questions should be emailed to clerks@bigbenlaw.com. Alternatively, if sending feedback by post, please address your letter for the attention of:
