The practice management team will:

  • Advise you on the experience, availability and suitability of the barristers at XXIV Old Buildings
  • Discuss fees, liaise with you about the costs and/or additional costs setting out a detailed narrative of the work, the fees and the timescale parameters before the work is undertaken
  • Discuss particular issues relating to how you instruct us. Specific information for international/offshore clients and those interested in licensed access is also available on the website
  • Discuss and monitor cases to ensure that your requirements are met within the timeframe you are working to. For example, the following may influence the timescale – availability of all parties involved, the complexity of the case, and court waiting times.
  • Handle communications with the courts, where appropriate, to ensure your matter is dealt with properly and promptly
  • Arrange mediation

Please be advised that unless stated otherwise VAT will apply to all fee parameters.

At XXIV Old Buildings we look to establish an excellent and on-going relationship with every client who instructs us. We therefore work with our clients in a number of other ways such as assisting with in-house training as well as organising secondments and mini-pupillages.  If you would like more information on these, please contact one of the practice management team.

XXIV Old Buildings runs a number of annual international and UK based conferences in locations such as Geneva, Dubai, the Caribbean and London.
