Our charges

Our costs are generally based on the time we spend time dealing with your case in accordance with our hourly charge out rates. These depend on the seniority and experience of the Case Handler advising you. We will always give you a cost estimate at the beginning of every matter.

We are happy to carry out work on a fixed-fee basis to provide you with the security of knowing what your legal costs will be from the outset. If you would find it helpful, we can also agree a fees limit that should not be exceeded.
