The following terms and conditions will apply between

ORMIDALE LICENSING SERVICES, 52A Ormidale Terrace, Edinburgh EH12 6EF, (“OLS”)

and

………………………………………………………………………………………………….………………………………………………………………………………………………….. (the Firm”)

The parties have agreed and do hereby agree as follows.

  1. OLS have agreed to provide the undernoted licensing services to the Firm for the benefit of the Firm’s client specified below (if appropriate).
  2. The person responsible for providing the OLS services is Thomas George Johnston (“TGJ”), retired solicitor.
  3. OLS’s charges will be based on the time spent by TGJ, based on six minute blocks of time (“unit”). The charge per unit will be £7.50 unless agreed otherwise. Waiting, consultancy and preparation time will be charged in addition to any time spent appearing before any licensing board. No charge will be made for travelling time, but OLS shall charge a mileage rate of £0.50, plus parking charges. All fees and outlays quoted are net of Value Added Tax.
  4. Fees and outlays are payable within 14 days of the date of issue. The Firm accept that it is liable for such fees and outlays as principal, and that regardless of when and whether the Firm receives payment from the Firm’s client. Unless otherwise agreed, a note of fee shall be rendered at the conclusion of the matter. In the event of any case being adjourned for a period of fourteen days or more, an invoice may be rendered for all work undertaken up to the time of the adjournment. In the event of any fee note remaining outstanding after the date the same becomes due, OLS reserves the right to decline to carry out any further work on the matter.
  5. OLS is acting as a pro hac vice employee of the Firm. The Firm agrees that OLS is covered by the Firm’s professional liability insurance and undertakes that any claims made against OLS will be treated as claims made against the Firm. The liability of OLS to the Firm shall be limited to the amount of any fees and outlays rendered to, and paid by, the Firm in connection with the current matter.
  6. It shall be the responsibility of the Firm to provide OLS timeously with full and up to date instructions on all material facts relating to the matter and to advise forthwith of any changes to relevant facts and circumstances. OLS reserve the right to take instructions directly from the Firm’s client. Unless the Firm specifies otherwise, any representative of the Firm’s client who attends any licensing board with OLS shall be deemed to have authority to give instructions. The Firm shall, for the benefit of the licensing board, provide OLS with written instructions, in terms acceptable to the relevant licensing board, confirming OLS’s authority to appear on behalf of the Firm’s client.
  7. Any dispute between the parties (with the exception of non-payment of OLS’s fees and outlays, unless a query shall have been made by the Firm to OLS in writing within 14 days of issue)  shall be resolved by reference to an arbitrator to be agreed, or, failing agreement,  to be appointed by the President of The Law Society of Scotland.
  8. Communications: as emails and voicemail messages are checked only from time to time, no instruction sent by such means can be assumed to have been received unless an acknowledgement has been sent by OLS.
