There are a number of types of cases where we can offer a fixed fee so you may have clarity of mind about our fee at the outset of your case.However, you can use our online enquiry form our website page so we can establish the situations of the matter and your requirements and let you have either a fixed price quotation or an estimate based on our hourly rates. However, sometimes in the early stages it is very difficult to estimate the final cost and that can remain the case until all the facts and/or evidence become known. In such cases we give our best estimate at the beginning and update you from time to time as the matter progresses. Obviously in such matters we can only give our best estimate at the time and cannot give a quotation or any other form of fixed price.
We can offer a free initial consultation service to prospective clients who should contact our offices for the available date and time.
We may agree with you to work on an hourly rate basis. Our hourly rates are based on ‘Solicitors’ guideline hourly rate’ provided by the ‘HM Courts & Tribunal Service’ guidance. For hourly rate basis, our charges are set below:
Solicitors/legal executives with over 8 years post qualification experience Grade A: £217.00
Solicitors/legal executives with over 4 years’ experience grade B: £192.00
Other qualified solicitors / legal executives grade C: £161.00
Trainee/paralegal Grade D: £118.00
We hereby provide average costs that you can incur during your matter. Below is an estimate of costs as a guide only but we can give an accurate cost assessment once we have full details of your matter.
‘No win no fee’ agreements:
In personal injury claims cases we offer our legal services to you on ‘No win no fee agreement’ basis. The price we give you will be the maximum 25% of your compensation you will pay us towards the cost of our work. With these agreements not only do we guarantee that you will not pay us any more for our work than the agreed % but you also have the additional assurance that if you do not win compensation, you will not need to pay us anything for our work.
If any service or type of application we provide is missing above we shall agree the fee with our potential client the outset of instructions.
Our hourly rates will be reviewed on 1st of November every year. We may additionally take into account a number of factors including the complication and complexity of the matter and the time at which action must be taken, the expertise of the specialist knowledge required. Our legal fees are reviewed each year and thus if this matter is not concluded prior to the next review date takes place, then we will notify you of our new revised charges which will apply to all work done from the review date.
