What is a fixed fee for Solicitor’s Costs?

    A fixed fee is simply that - a fee that is fixed for your case or part of your case.
    It is an agreed amount paid for a set piece of work. We agree with you what work is needed, the amount of costs to do it and how those costs will be paid.
    This way you can be sure about what we will do for you and how much it will cost.
    We have the experience to appreciate that not every case is suitable for a fixed fee, but our philosophy is that fixed fees for Solicitors’ Costs should be the norm and not the exception.
    The fixed fees will cover only our fees – Solicitors costs.
    The fixed fees do not cover any disbursements to be incurred in your case. You will be advised separately on these upon instructions.

How do Solicitor’s fixed fees work for legal Cases?

    All our Solicitors are highly experienced in working with clients and consider each case individually. 
    Our primary consideration is to determine an appropriate fixed fee for the agreed plan of action in your case. 
    We offer fixed fees which cover the whole of an agreed plan of action or fixed fees for stages within the process. 
    We also offer fixed fee packages for court proceedings and the different stages within the case. 
    There are situations which may arise which are unforeseen that involve additional work. If this occurs, we will tell you immediately, and no further expense is incurred until a further fee arrangement has been agreed with you. 
    Variations from the Agreed fixed fee would occur if the work needed has changed significantly. If this occurs, we will consider the change and the impact upon the case, and if developments fall outside the agreed plan of action, you are immediately notified in writing and you will retain the choice of accepting a new arrangement.

What are the advantages of agreeing a Fixed Fee for my legal case?

    As the majority of court cases settle during the process, it would not be acceptable to you, the client, to quote a fee for the whole case when there is real prospect of an early settlement, thereby wasting costs. 
    Our fixed fees are also suitable for non-contentious matters such as Drafting a will, Making a Power of Attorney or advising on a settlement agreement 
    Our fixed fees enable you to limit representation and their costs just to the stage that is agreed. It is then a personal choice as to whether or not the next stage is agreed, giving you ultimate control over costs. 
    There are situations which may arise which are unforeseen and that involve additional work. On these occasions, we will tell you immediately, and no further expense is incurred until a further fee arrangement has been agreed with you.
