Clear Pricing

Our pricing sets us apart from many of our competitors and other law firms.

There is no escaping the fact that there are costs to be paid whenever people get involved with the law. But we do everything we can to make those costs manageable so that we can work together to achieve your aim without worrying unduly about the expense.

Why choose us?

We’ve done our research and it’s clear to us that our clients want:

  • more pricing and payment options
  • greater pricing transparency
  • greater pricing certainty and budgetary predictability – ‘no surprises’
  • greater correlation between price on the one hand and the perceived value of the results achieved on the other hand
  • real efforts to reduce production costs
Assurance

Rest assured where pricing is concerned we’ll work with you to explore the options available to you that best suit your individual circumstances. We’ve designed our pricing to fit what’s important to you. Whether you’re looking for certainty, a price linked to a result, sharing the pricing risk or options for payment we’ll work hard to get you to where you want to be.

We’ll ensure you are kept fully informed and updated before, during and at the end of our service to you, not just providing a quote and then sending an invoice.  We’ll provide you with absolute pricing transparency.

Pricing options

We offer a range of pricing options where we work with our clients to really understand their requirements, reflecting a collaborative approach with our clients’ needs at the heart of the process. These pricing options provide a range of choices designed to match each particular situation and to offer real value and include:

  • Hourly-rate options
  • Fixed-fees for the entire case and/or stages of your matter
  • Conditional Fee Arrangements
  • Damages based agreements

Once we’ve identified the pricing option best suited to you, we’ll fully document the arrangement ensuring you are certain you know exactly what you’re paying for and what is excluded from the price we quote. We’ll lay this out in a clear, easy to understand format for your records.
