We charge for the legal work we do on a time recorded basis based on hourly rates. Our charging rate is based upon the seniority and experience of the file handler working on your case as follows:

  • £217.00 per hour plus VAT – Solicitors or CILEX with at least 8 years post-qualification experience (PQE);
  • £192.00 per hour plus VAT – Solicitors, CILEX or Costs Lawyers with at least 4 years PQE;

  • £118.00 per hour plus VAT – Paralegals, trainees or equivalent

The total cost, before VAT and disbursements, will depend upon the time taken, which will be tailored to your transaction. We will be able to give you a range of likely costs once we know what is involved in the transaction you want us to do and as these are each individual, we cannot give you a likely estimate without receiving further information.

In addition VAT is chargeable, currently 20%.

In addition you will have to pay any disbursements. We explain below any likely disbursements and their cost, where known and not known the average cost or range of costs.

We also explain whether they attract VAT and if so the likely amount.
