Our fees are charged with reference to a number of factors laid down by the Law Society and Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) guidelines i.e. nature, type and complexity of the matter, value of a transaction, speed of action required and time involved.
We ensure that our clients are informed of the basis on which the fees are to be charged on each matter at the outset whether it is on a fixed fee basis as with commercial matters or at an hourly rate as with litigation matters.
We aim to keep our clients informed of fees and disbursements incurred during the course of a matter and we are always willing to discuss this aspect with our clients on request.
