This fee scale details our fees for all civil and commercial advice and services that we provide to our clients. We charge on a fixed fee basis only. However, should you wish to withdraw instructions part way through your case we reserve the right to charge for work undertaken and calculated on my normal hourly rate of £177 per hour. Routine letters and emails that we write, and routine telephone calls that we make and receive will be charged as units of 1/10th of an hour. Routine letters and emails received will be charged as units of 1/20th of an hour. Please note that our organisation is not VAT registered.
