We offer value for money and reasonable fees
We like to think that we offer value for money and reasonable fees. You’ll see fees quoted on many of our pages but otherwise we’d invite you to speak to a member of the team to discuss your matter. We offer upfront and transparent pricing on all matters.
We will inform you from the outset of our charges, whether on a fixed fee basis or on an hourly rate. We will also provide you with the best estimate of likely costs of the matter, along with the costs of any third party fees (known as disbursements) such as Land Registry, Court Fees or Experts.
In litigation matters, we can also look at funding arrangements such as Conditional Fee Agreements (commonly known as “No Win No Fee” agreements), taking a percentage of recovery (called Damages Based Agreements) or matters funded by Legal Expenses Insurance whether through your home or business insurance.
Get in touch
Our ethos in all matters is to provide direct advice that is tailored to your circumstances, not simply a list of options or leaving the decision with you. We hope to provide the kind of service you expect from your solicitor, but please tell us if we do not achieve that at any point.
The Partners of the Firm take great pride and responsibility for the quality of work produced by the team, and supervision and training is core to our ongoing aim for excellence.
