Transparency on legal fees
We appreciate that the payment of legal fees can be a worry so we aim to provide clear and accurate information about your likely costs.
Our fees are calculated according to the time we spend working on your case, charged at an hourly rate with reference to your lawyer’s experience. We do not charge an uplift and there are no hidden extras. Please remember, however, that all fees quoted are net of VAT (currently 20%).
We give a written costs estimate at the outset and we review this every time we send a bill (usually monthly). If something happens which means the estimate is going to change, then we will inform you immediately.
We offer a face-to-face initial interview for a fixed fee of £60 for up to half an hour and £120 for up to one hour. These interviews allow us to find out about your situation, to give an overview of the law and the options available and the cost implications. If you go on to instruct us to act for you, we will deduct the cost of the initial interview from our subsequent fees.
Pay as you go
We also offer a “pay as you go” or “unbundled service” for those who wish to keep their costs to an absolute minimum. This is where we help you to act for yourself; you do most of the work and come and meet us whenever you need to so that we can check and approve paperwork or give you advice.
We are happy to accept payment by credit or debit card or by bank transfer.
If you would like more information about costs please do get in touch and we can discuss any concerns or provide additional information.
