Fees & Remuneration Committee

This Fees & Remuneration Committee deals with all matters relating to the level of fees, the collection of fees, tax and all other matters relating to remuneration.  It participates with the General Council of the Bar in joint actions to protect and develop the interests of the Bar and all its members.

Individual members of both the Fees & Remuneration and the Management Committee work tirelessly to defend the Bar against the seemingly ever-shrinking pocket of publicly funded work. They have long succeeded in safe guarding the Bar from the imbalance that is ever threatened.

Where necessary, the committee is equipped to deal with contracts of employment, redundancy payments, industrial relations and general terms and conditions of employment.
