Fees and Funding
Our approach to funding is to be flexible and to work with the client to find a funding solution that works for them.
We will whenever possible work under a fixed, staged, capped or discounted fee regime which provides not only certainty of cost but also value for money.
It is standard practice within the legal sector for litigation and dispute resolution work to be undertaken by using hourly rates. We recognise this unsatisfactory practice provides little comfort for clients and therefore adopt novel ways of working which prove beneficial to both our clients and ourselves.
We often try to fix or cap fees for each stage of litigation
Although less common, we also work with conditional fee agreements (no win no fee agreeements) , contingency fee agreements and can arrange insurance policies to indemnify you for any disbursements or legal costs that you may become liable for should your case not succeed.
We frequently undertake work where a client has the benefit of a legal expense insurance policy and in this situation we will work with you to find a solution that is acceptable to you and your insurers.
In those situations where a client prefers a standard hourly rate then this varies from £220 – £250 per hour plus vat for a solicitor of partner level, depending upon the complexity of the matter. The exact rate will be agreed with you once we understand the nature of the work that we are being asked to undertake and the likely fee recovery (if any) from the other side.
If you require legal representation and you wish to meet us and discuss fees prior to instructing us then we are happy to speak with you and meet with you without charge and without further obligation. We also offer a fixed fee 75 minute meeting for £120 inc vat for those situations where one- off advice is needed.
