Here’s an interesting ‘costs’ case about a barrister (not connected to these Chambers) who lodged an Appeal to the High Court concerning the sums allowed to him (his professional fees) by the determining officer in the Criminal Appeal Office under Schedule 3 of the Criminal Legal Aid (Remuneration) Regulations 2013. The barrister won his appeal and was awarded the full costs he had requested.
As criminal barristers, we all know it can be a battle to be paid for the work completed on cases, but this Judgment just goes to show that we should… ‘bill for what we are worth’!!
