We believe that our fee agreements should be transparent and that the value of a legal service should always be greater than the price paid.
We like to work with clients to find the fee arrangements that best work for them in the circumstances. There are many different type of fee arrangements that we offer for different types of matters, including:
This is where we agree the scope of the matter with you and fix the costs in advance to give you complete price certainty. Fixed fees are generally offered for transactional legal services, such as conveyancing or estate planning work. While not generally offered for litigation claims, we’re open to discussing this with you.
This is where our legal services are provided on a timed basis and we charge you fees based on the amount of time we spend on your matter. For time billed matters, we will always work with you to understand the outcome you’re seeking and provide you with an estimate of the costs, which will be agreed with you before we start work on your matter.(not after!)
Our local lawyers have access to all the resources of a national legal practice to make sure you get the best possible outcome.
