Fees

We offer a flexible approach to fee structure which is cost effective to you. You can elect to be charged a monthly retainer or at a daily, fixed or hourly rate. The daily rate might be attractive to businesses. Usually we would be working from your premises and would do any legal work that arises within the business. You have the comfort of working closely with us and we would integrate ourselves into the business thereby ensuring that our services to you would be commercial and practical.

The monthly retainer would be suitable to businesses.  We provide legal support for all your general legal issues.  Just having quick access to that legal support for advice or legal guidance gives you that peace of mind.

The fixed rate – we would agree a fee with you. This gives you certainty and would encompass all work in relation to that particular matter.

The hourly rate – work is charged as time is spent on the matter.
