I am regulated by the Bar Standards Board.
The areas in which I undertake work are employment and discrimination law.

Typical fees are as follows:
Preliminary Hearing (Case Management): £750 plus VAT

A brief fee is a payment in respect of the preparation for the hearing and includes the first day of the hearing.
A refresher is a payment for attendance for any day after the first day of the hearing.
If you wish to have a conference, I would typically charge £500 plus VAT in respect of a conference with around 1-2 hours of preparation. Conferences with greater complexity, in terms of the law or in respect of reading time, can cost around £1000 plus VAT and occasionally more.
