SERVICES + PRICING

 

Pricing

Wherever possible we will work to a mutually agreed budget which will not be exceeded without your agreement.

In certain cases it may be possible to agree a fixed fee for a limited scope of work, but as a client may often go on to seek further work of a more time-consuming or complex nature than understood at the time of the initial instruction, we generally charge on a time-cost basis.

Our competitive current charging rates for work on a time-cost basis are:

Partners, Consultants and Senior Solicitors: £240 per hour;

Associate Solicitors: between £180 and £240 per hour;

Trainee solicitors: between £100 and £120 per hour;

Para Legals (including case managers, legal executives and administrative assistants): between £90 and £110 per hour.

Where we are charging on a time-cost basis, we will charge in minimum units of 6 minutes (1/10th of an hour) for the work that we do. VAT at the prevailing rate will be charged in addition.
