Our charges

We will provide you with a clear and accurate estimate of our charges in writing on application.

We aim to provide complete transparency in respect of the fees we charge.

Our charges are based on the time we spend dealing with a matter unless a fixed fee or other funding arrangements are agreed.  Time spent will include meetings with you and, where appropriate and necessary, with others; any time spent travelling; drafting documents; considering papers, letters and emails received and preparing for meetings, and where appropriate, attending court on your behalf.  We also charge for drafting and sending letters and emails and making and receiving telephone calls. In addition to the time spent, we may take into account a number of factors, which include the complexity of the issues, the speed at which action must be taken, the expertise or specialist knowledge that the case requires and where appropriate the value of the property or subject matter involved. The value element reflects the importance of the transaction to you and the consequent responsibility falling on this Firm.
