We charge a fixed fee for an initial meeting and advice. We will offer you an initial one hour appointment with an experienced adviser at a convenient time for you to discuss your case by telephone, Zoom, Teams or in person.
The standard fee is £500 plus VAT if we are asked to consider up to 20 pages of documents, or £650 plus VAT to consider between 20 and 40 pages of documents.
If we are asked to review more than 40 pages of documents, a fixed fee will be confirmed upon provision of the documents.
After the initial fixed fee service, our charges would be calculated in line with our hourly rates.
Please note, our initial appointments are not the same as the ‘free half an hour’ appointments that may be offered by some law firms. Free appointments tend to be limited to generic advice only and therefore we do not offer free consultations, as we believe in providing our clients with the best advice. We know such offers may sound appealing however, in our experience, these meetings do not give sufficient time to discuss matters fully nor indeed do they provide any practical advice about your situation and you would normally be charged for any follow up advice in writing.
