How To Instruct Us & Terms
How to Instruct Us
All Members of Henderson Chambers are self-employed and independent law practitioners.
Our experienced and skilled clerking team, led by Chief Clerk John White will be happy to assist you by recommending the barrister or team most suited to deal with any given case, and suggest the best way for you to access our services.
The clerks are the first point of contact for all our clients, and have an extensive knowledge of each barrister’s areas of practice and availability.
Members of Chambers are typically instructed by solicitors in the UK and internationally, both in house and in private practice, but are also able to accept instructions from:
- Employed Barristers
- Authorised Litigators
- Licensed Conveyancers
- Financial Institutions
- Parliamentary Agents
- Patent Agents
- European Patent Attorneys
- Trade Mark Agents
We also accept instructions from corporate professionals and bodies who are licensed by the Bar Council’s Licensed Access Scheme. More information of which can be found on the Bar Council’s website.
We have links with lawyers in other jurisdictions, and are happy to work in co-operation with legal professionals in all parts of the world. We have done so successfully in the past including forming teams with lawyers on several different continents.
Terms of Engagement
Members of Chambers accept instructions under the Bar Council’s Standard Contractual Terms and Conditions – unless otherwise agreed in advance, in writing, between the barrister and professional client.
The clerks would be very happy to discuss alternative contractual arrangements in advance should the need arise.
