Our fees

How much we will charge for our work depends on a number of different things. Fees vary across the type of legal service being provided, with the main ones being:

  • Conveyancing
  • Licensing applications (for business premises)
  • Immigration

However, fees may also depend on the time it takes to do the work and the experience of the solicitor involved.

Our professional fees exclusive of VAT are based on a time element. Each client is charged at an hourly rate, which is reviewed periodically. The following rates will apply to majority of our cases:

A solicitor / member would usually charge £225 per hour.

A solicitor would usually charge £165 per hour.

A trainee solicitor / paralegal would usually charge £ 80 per hour.
