Transparency

The Chambers of Julian Hunt is regulated by The Bar Standards Board (the “BSB”) and the BSB has brought in new transparency rules, following the Competition and Markets Authority’s recommendation in December 2016 that the legal regulators deliver a step-change in transparency standards to help consumers understand the price and service they will receive, what redress is available and the regulatory status of their provider.

The Chambers of Julian Hunt provides clear price and service information in line with the BSB price transparency guidelines.

The mandatory rules say we must:

1) State that professional, licensed access and/or lay clients (as appropriate) may contact us in chambers to obtain a quotation for legal services.

You can contact the Chambers of Julian Hunt on 02030720055 or 07817772382 or by email on info@julianrhunt.co.uk to obtain a quote.

2) State chambers’ most commonly used pricing models for legal services.

Our pricing varies. Our fees are fixed fees and we undertake a conference with you initially to understand your case and then decide on the way forward giving you advice as to whether you have a case or not.  Fees thereafter depending on whether a simple liability or complex banding case involving multiple properties with many tens or hundreds of thousands of thousands of pounds at stake.  

3) State the areas of practice and provide a description of chambers most commonly provides legal services.

You can find our practice areas the services the Chambers of Julian Hunt provides on this website.

4) Provide information about the factors which might influence the timescales of chambers’ most commonly provided legal services.

When we are instructed to provide advisory work, unless otherwise agreed, we expect to return work within 7-14 days and we will aim to keep you informed if that changes for any reason, for example, due to the client not providing timely and complete instructions; illness; or urgent court work on another matter. When we are instructed to provide services regarding litigation, timescales will usually depend on similar factors mentioned with regard to advisory work, plus response times of the court or VT; the opponent; and any other third parties directly involved in the litigation.

5) Display information about the complaints procedure, any right to complain to the Legal Ombudsman (LeO), how to complain to the LeO, and any time limits for making a complaint.

You can view our Complaint’s Procedure here or you can contact us here for a hard copy to be sent to you. See the decision data on the LeO’s website, this can be found here.
