We always aim to provide transparency about our fees and once you make an enquiry with us, we will always make an initial call to discuss the details of your case in more detail and let you know how we would be able to assist. We do not charge for our initial call. We find that working on a fixed fee basis gives our clients as much clarity as possible about the costs of their case.
We charge an initial instruction fee for each case which is paid on account once you decide you would like to instruct us to represent you. This allows us to start working on your case and provide initial advice regarding plea and how best to proceed.
To assist you, we’ve set out estimates of likely overall costs below:
“Where applicable, VAT is charged at the prevailing rate, currently 20%”.
All costs set out above are estimates based on our experience of working on similar cases. Upon formal instruction we will provide a bespoke quote to you dependent on the type and complexity of your case which will be confirmed in writing. Fees are always agreed with you and can usually be paid in stages throughout the duration of your case.
What is a disbursement?
Disbursements are costs incurred on your behalf in relation to your case, for example expert’s fees. If any disbursements are necessary in your case, we will discuss these with you in detail and obtain your prior authorisation, before they are incurred.
