AGF guidance

The first tranche of 4.5 per cent cuts to all advocates graduated fees took effect from 27 April 2010. There will be further cuts in April 2011 and April 2012. Disbursements, such as travel and accommodation, are not affected by the fee changes.

The MoJ has informed the Bar Council that the courts computer software will not be updated and accordingly, there will be a different claims process (see Bar Council website for further information).
