Transparent Fees Policy across all areas of work with fixed fees offered where possible.

We undertake work in all areas of law covered by the content of this website.

We know how important this is to be able to estimate the legal fees budget. We therefore follow a very simple and transparent fees policy.

We tend where possible to agree a fixed fee for the work we do.

Fixed Fee for the initial consultation to help to estimate the scope of work.

We charge a fixed fee of £230 to £265 plus VAT depending on the matter for a one-hour consultation meeting with a free 15-minute telephone follow-up discussion. Our fixed fee includes, preparing and sending a written engagement letter, containing a summary of the advice provided at the meeting.

Our hourly fee varies between £230 and £265 per hour plus VAT, depending on the area of law and solicitors involved.

Providing information in compliance with our Regulator’s requirements.

The below fee information relates to the three areas of law, namely Debt Recovery, Employment and Immigration where our regulator requires us to publish a very detail fee scale and information on our website.

Please note that our work is NOT limited to only these three areas of law.

Court Claims – Debts up to £100,000

The process and costs below will apply where your claim is in relation to an unpaid invoice which is not disputed and enforcement action is not needed.

If the other party disputes your claim at any point, we will discuss any further work required and provide you with revised advice about costs if necessary, which could be on a fixed fee (for example, if a one-off letter is required), or an hourly rate if more extensive work is needed.

Please note our fees for each stage will vary depending on complexity* but are provided as average fees. We will always provide a fee estimate at the beginning of a new matter and the exact costs will reflect time spent on a matter, so please contact us for a more precise quote.

Information about our own complaints process, raising concerns to the Legal Ombudsman and to us

We want to give you the best possible service. However, if at any point you become unhappy or concerned about the service we provided then you should inform us immediately, so that we can do our best to resolve the problem.

In the first instance it may be helpful to contact the person who is working on your case to discuss your concerns and we will do our best to resolve any issues at this stage. If you would like to make a formal complaint, then you can read our full complaints procedure here. Making a complaint will not affect how we handle your case.

The Solicitors Regulation Authority can help you if you are concerned about our behaviour. This could be for things like dishonesty, taking or losing your money or treating you unfairly because of your age, a disability or other characteristic. 

You can raise your concerns with the Solicitors Regulation Authority.

What do to if we cannot resolve your complaint

The Legal Ombudsman can help you if we are unable to resolve your complaint ourselves. They will look at your complaint independently and it will not affect how we handle your case.

Before accepting a complaint for investigation, the Legal Ombudsman will check that you have tried to resolve your complaint with us first. If you have, then you must take your complaint to the Legal Ombudsman:

  • Within six months of receiving a final response to your complaint; and,
  • No more than six years from the date of act/omission; or
  • No more than three years from when you should reasonably have known there was cause for complaint.
  • If you would like more information about the Legal Ombudsman, please contact them.
