Service and Fees
We take a reasonable and flexible approach to fees, understanding individual needs of each client differ. Taking into account client’s expectations and their particular budgets, charges can be based on hourly rates, ballpark estimated fees or a fixed fee. No work is undertaken until fees have been discussed and agreed.
We are always available to discuss the level of fees to be charged. Hourly rates are generally the fairest way to charge for advisory work and drafting legal documents. Estimates can be provided on the information put before counsel, however further information may come to light, instructions are altered or changed, the opposing parties stance, all may result in the fee estimate being amended but this will only be done following consultation with those that instruct us.
Fixed fees are always possible, once we have all the relevant information before counsel.
Timescale of providing the required advice or legal documentation is a priority, however, on occasions other factors may cause some delay, such as, a court hearing becoming more substantial than expected or over running but we would endeavor to keep you informed or notify you in good time.
