We adopt a transparent and commercial approach to fees. Our clerks would be happy to discuss the the most suitable pricing models for your case.
Our most commonly used pricing models are hourly rates and fixed fees.For trials, our most commonly used pricing models are brief fees (which may be staged depending on the size of the trial) together with daily refreshers for the duration of the trial.
The most appropriate pricing model will vary depending on factors such as the type of case, the nature of the work required, the amount of work required, and the urgency of the work.
