Fee Setting by Legal Profession and other Associations Left Unchecked by Successive Governments

The following was posted to the Fair Trading Commission (FTC) website in July 2008. It is not necessary for the blogmaster to cover the below with comments except to say, ‘we not ready’.

See FTC recommendations on page 26 of the document embedded.

In 2007, the Commission began a follow-up inquiry into fee setting in the professions focusing especially on the schedule of legal fees for non-contentious matters.

The Commission had previously found that mandatory fees set by professional associations were in breach of the Fair Competition Act. However it stopped short of making the same finding in regard to non-contentious fees because they were set in statute. The Commission however determined that the schedule of legal fees for attorneys at law, represented a conflict with the principles of fair and open competition as advocated in the Fair Competition Act.

The Commission therefore has formally recommended that an amendment be made to the Legal Profession Act 1997, so that the fees charged for non-contentious matters can be recognised as being provided for reference only, and attorneys wishing to charge above or below these fees, being able to do so without reprisal.

This will resolve the conflict between the two statutes, and should allow for some competition in the legal profession.

  • Steupes. Not one of these political party will touch the corrupt legal fraternity because that is the mafia from which most members of parliament are selected.

    They are the lowest form in the listing of Professional .

    This is where the average bajan has been crying out for help but to no avail. Politicians and lawyers – lawyers and politicians – same dirty old pants – turned inside out.

    Why are we still paying the economic cost at UWI for them to get their certification – so that they can pratise their evil on us ?

  • @T. Inniss,

    The answer is simple: let lawyers advertise and compete on service and fees. Why is the state setting legal fees? Conveyancing is a classic example of this state-approved dishonesty. It takes no more effort or searches to carry out conveyancing for a small house than it does for a multi-million dollar mansion on the West Coast yet the range in fees is huge. Why? We must get rid of lawyers from parliament.

  • Lawyers hate to give clients their fees for services up front because they charge what they want even thought there exists a fees schedule…..you have to make a scene and demand one to get it in writing…most lawyers believe they should make more money from a transaction than the client and much more money than the clients can afford….most people do not know that there is a fees schedule…no one ever told them…

    Mia changed the constitution before any seat in parliament was warm, did you see her rush to change the conflicted legislation that rips off clients…it holds no interest for her and she has no empathy for the clients of her fellow crook lawyers….or she would have made those changes first…

    There are way too many lawyers in parliament and ALL of them are DISHONEST and CORRUPT….despite people they robbed crying out for decades, not one of the snakes in parliament ever lifted a finger to stop them from robbing and terrorizing the helpless and vulnerable clients and others……..not one of the lawyers in parliament can be trusted, not one..

    ALL of them can be FINGERED for stealing from clients and SELLING OUT cases at the repulsive dump of a Supreme Court…every one……

    …..the Bar Association should be disbanded, it is a pit of vipers FILLED TO CAPACITY with well known thieves…

    Don’t hold your breath for the Mia government to clean up any of it either..all of them in there are stained, so much so that it is now showing on all of them physically…just like the mark of the beast,…in this case..the MARK of THIEVES..

    Ask Mia about all the cases Leslie Haynes has lingering and stuck in the supreme Court for CGI Insurance, him and his rotten judge friends… with many injured people some severely injured, some disabled and waiting many, many years now to be compensated…ask her when those cases will be concluded instead of sitting there backlogging the court system that it is unable to move..

    …….ask her what she plans to do about any of it or any of them who are still ripping off their clients and still refuse to finish cases …then you will have your answer about how evil the lawyers are in Barbados…none of them should get work, none, none of them should be eating at taxpayers expense either as Mia now has them all in place and spread out to tief more…

    ….all of the lawyers who are still actively robbing clients and selling out cases should be STARVED..and they will be once clients continue to STOP using their tiefing services…..

  • What I have seen on BU the transfer of land by lawyers on the island is usually written in invisible ink. We have a bar up here for lawyers that separates them from the people to practice their trade in a professional manor overlooked by a law society and judges to keep everything on the up and up. In barbados if lawyers are called to the bar its usually to pick up a tray of drinks for some tourists as most legal jobs are not crazy paying ones….. but real estate law is a different kettle of fish and if what people say on here is true…. which I honestly believe…. it is like the feed bell going off on a hog farm. People dying with no will … relatives inheriting property from abroad a naive population..etc all make for the three card monte men to appear.

  • “The Barbados system of conveyance is different from that of the United Kingdom in that it has for the most part an unregistered system of conveyance. An attorney acting for a purchaser has to trace title back 20 years to ensure the property purchased has a good and marketable title. This accounts in part for the length of time the matter takes between contract and completion. Requisitions on title and title searches are carried out after contract and the vendor is required only at this stage to answer the requisitions as to title. Prior to completion the vendor or his agent points out the line marks to the property. In experience this should be done as soon as possible after contract. Any difficulty in locating line marks or any incorrectly placed marks or encroachment on property will result in a delay in completion.”

    Remember 10 – 15 years ago and still today – whenever the female drug mules came in from Jamaica – they all cited nail technicians and hairdressers as their professions?

    @ Hal Austin

    I will give you a perfect example of how crooked and backward the Legal system is in Barbados which you can verify and understand.

    To setup a limited liability company or incorporated company in Barbados it is mandatory to use a lawyer $1500, government $750 and name search $100 total $2350.

    In the UK it is not mandatory to have a lawyer or accountant when forming a limited liability company where one can issue shares from inception the cost is 15 pounds just under BD$39.

    You know what is the amazing thing the Forms to complete the incorporation including the wording is a carbon copy of the UK incorporated documents.
    (I know as I have done both)

    These crooked black for the most part Barbados lawyers are copy cats and lack any original thought process as they seek to fleece others.

    Below link is from an individual in the UK who formed his own LTD including cost.

  • @Barbados Underground,
    To set up a limited liability company in the UK is free – just fill in the Companies House form. I can also give you an example of legal robbery. A lawyer’s letter in the UK cost about £25 to £50 (Bds$150). I got a lawyer in Barbados to send a letter to someone for me and it cost me Bds$500 – I did the first draft .
    I will give another example: in the UK, part of a redundancy agreement is the legally mandated settlement agreement, which includes that the person being made redundant must get legal advice about the terms of the redundancy. The employer is duty bound to pay up to £400 for that legal advice. Trade unions usually offer the member legal advice and take the money.
    In Barbados not only don’t redundant people get legal advice as part of the deal, it appears as if it takes them weeks to get paid.
    Barbados is a failed state.

    How many lawyers in Barbados today are politicians and how many politicians are lawyers? How many delay cases and rip off clients?

    Re the homegrown copying of non Barbadian ideas, forms etc.
    Even realized how ‘some’ is copied and not all?How the ‘some’ does not necessarily make sense in our part of the globe? How if you question it the person you are asking goes into a rage and insults, ignored or angrily tells you that is how it is-that is the rule?

    Questions: Wha part de newSC sewage plant gine be? Back in the swamp land?
    Who gine monitor and make sure it is maintained as it should?Will they keep records?
    What is the projected capacity of the “New” SCSP?
    Will other Hotels be built on the overburdened South Coast? if so what size and number of bathrooms, sinks etc?
    What will be done that was not done with the Bridgetown or South Coast Projects to ensure that it the SC one will will function properly?
    Will the same people be involved? If not, who? What is their track record of SUCCESS in similar environments?
    Will the sanctuary remain closed? If so why?
    Too bad we do not appreciate the swamp, the mangroves, the fish, birds-the pleasures it brought to many Barbadians and visitors over the years. If it were possible to offer it up for sale and removal, offers will clear the Nsational debt with some left over to assist the needy until they can help themselves.

    Last night while in de country – sewage scent still doing damage to my health and STILL no help from the BWA or Government – I heard the P.M. on the News say words to the effect that people will do what they determine as best for them.(Something to do with Caricom? Not sure).This also applies to tourism. Guess what,? Tourists are more than foreign currency-they are people too-just as we are when we travel abroad. Let us remember that home drums beat first- if we cannot or would not put things right for ourselves can we for others?

    Carryout a Survey, ask the tourist how our streets compare with theirs re Bush, debris,garbage piled up, bush weeded and heaped along the sides of the narrow roads, paths covered with grass, coconut shells left to rot on the highway, blind corners due to high bush, mini buses stopping in the middle of the road to pick up a passenger, broken, no, or skimpy sidewalks,car horns honking, men peeing all over the place, 10 wheeler and vehicles with trailers etc attached speeding at any time of day, no schedules public transportation, BWA digging up the road due to flowing water which reappears within 3-4 days of the first attempt to stop it AND flooding and speeding motorist wetting up pedestrians.
    Would they give a favorable comparison you think? And while all of that is being done be cognizant that there is NO TOURISM WITHOUT LOCALS.

    Speaking of water-wunna want to see water? Guh in Brewsters Gap/Road, Worthing View Christ Church
    Nuff, nuff water sitting pun de vacant land half wey down de gap. Said land used to be planted with canes…before some idiots changed the water course of the swamps and the water now busting loose where it has NEVER gone before.
    Yup, they drawing it off but it coming back the same day. Ask de people about the septic removal services they now using evah time they look around.

    Seriously, our Prime Minister Ms. Mottley, cannot do it all…she needs some real help from professionals-locals who know the terrain – hands on experience and not theory. It would be wise to succeed in one area before running on to many others at the same time. As I said before, she needs to revisit some decisions made.

    Cricism of the government is warranted, but to make up things just to find something to criticise is wrong.

  • @ Robert Goren,

    I think it is a matter of a muscle mind/brain. We already have people losing jobs, under the BERT redundancy scheme, which is meant to be under the flawed system of last in first out. We have, on top of this, workers in SOEs being sacked (for this is what a redundancy is) without the senior executives being told – and then one or two of those executives themselves having been removed.
    I take it the matter of job losses is not disputed. About people going missing, just look at the last 50 years at the number of people who have died in mysterious circumstances, have gone missing, or have died and suspects have not faced due process.
    I am not suggesting that the prime minister or her colleagues will be responsible for any missing persons. What I am saying is that misguided supporters may take it in to their own hands to remove people they see as enemies (have a look at Jamaica in 1976, unless you are saying this cannot never happen in Barbados). Look at Central America, unless you are saying this can never happen in Barbados;; look at Sri Lanka or the United Arab Emirate, both of which the DLP and/or the BLP has wanted to do business with; look at Saudi Arabia, or at our favourite super-state, China.
    Remember, China is now offering to train our police.

    In the Christian faith you cannot say that you have forgiven your brother … and then you erect a high wall of separation … true forgiveness entails returning the injured party to the current state of affairs before the committed wrong…

    Love is the ultimate test.
    It is the ONLY real measure
    It CANNOT be faked
    ….because the NATURAL impulse is to look after number ONE…
    LOVE is the natural tendency to look after OTHERS just as diligently…
    often even more so…

    Wuh happen? De hard edge wearing off and the gullibility showing up? We all know someone who talks a lotta shyte and then utters something profound once in a while and some of us are quick to reevaluate that individual’s acumen until they quickly revert to the norm.

    My favourite was many years ago when an acquaintance said “yuh know X is known for talking gibberish but I was speaking with him the other day and he said “there are more questions than answers” and that left me wondering how did he acquire such insight until I heard the song and realized where he got it from”.

    @ GP
    Are you REALLY grown up?

    When Jesus instructed someone to ‘get behind him’… what was he…?
    JESUS WAS GOD AND HE TOLD SATAN GET BEHIND HIM

    YOU ARE NOT GOD. YOU ARE SCUM AND THE SON OF SATAN AND THE DEVIL’S REPRESENTATIVE HERE ON BU

    Not just someone who can recognise the Devil when he sees him?
    NO YOU AGAIN TWISTED THE WORD AS USUAL

    JESUS THE SECOND PERSON OF THE TRINITY TOLD SATAN TO GET BEHIND HIM
    YOU ARE A MAN TELLING ANOTHER MAN TO GET BEHIND HIM

    No wonder you are so unnerved by Bushie…

    I AM NOT UNERVED BY THE DEVIL

    I RESIST HIM JUST AS I RESIST YOU

    YOU DONT GET ME ANGRY AS YOU THINK.
    YOU MAKE ME LAFF AS I RESIST YOUR PERPETUAL SLANDER

    Unlike most others here, you clearly KNOW who you are dealing with…

    ” Donna none of us is perfect”

    The big misconception hypocrites use when they want to continue in sin …GP what differentiates a Christian from a sinner…? God says to us … I am holy so be thou holy … and he that knoweth to do right and consciously does wrong has sin … GP what is the purpose of the Holy Spirit in your life if you continue to sin in words, thoughts and deeds…? If we cannot reach that level of divine perfect … why does God give us over to a reprobated mind to do those things that are contrary to His will…?

  • ANY OF YOU Christians WILLING TO HELP THE OLD LADY ?

    “The community of Warner’s Gap, Britton’s Hill, St Michael is gravely concerned about one of its elderly residents.

    The woman, 78-year-old Margaret Carter, is living in deplorable conditions and the fear is she may soon die in the dilapidated, partially collapsed house.

    In addition, there is a large pool of stagnated water outside the house, which neighbours said may be from a leak in a nearby pipe, despite Carter’s utilities having been disconnected.

    When A NATION team visited the area, Carter said she was not feeling well and neighbours were arranging food for her. She did not respond to any further questions. (CA) “

    Taking and academic approach to Scripture does not make you a Christian … you have to genuflect and ball out to God to fill you with the Holy Ghost so that you can take a more spiritual rather than an academic approach to Scripture …
