My aim is to be 100% clear on costs.
How I Structure Our Fees
The sums I charge depend on the kind of work you wish me to do for you. When I know what you would like me to do and what is required I or my clerk can let you know how much it will cost.
Typically, I charge fixed fees at the beginning of a case or for court hearings and an hourly rate for subsequent work. I require payment in advance before I begin work for you.
Fees For Hearings
The fee I charge for court hearings will depend on the type of hearing, the preparation required, the location and level of the Court or Tribunal, and the time estimate for the hearing.
I charge an hourly rate of £200 per hour for advisory and drafting work. Once I get an overview of the issue you would like me to advise on, or the document(s) you would like me to draft, I will let you know how long it will take and so how much it will cost. If you provide me with additional paperwork after I have given you an estimate, and the additional paperwork means the work will take longer, the estimate will change depending on how much longer I will need to spend on the case.
I can provide independent advice on a settlement agreement for the purposes of s.203 of the Employment Rights Act 1996 for a standard fixed fee of £500 plus VAT.
