Our Fees

hidden fees (003)

We can work with you in a number of ways:-

In common with many law firms,  our standard basis of charging is by way of an hourly rate.  We offer a range of hourly rates for our services according to the seniority and experience of the fee earner instructed. As a law firm regulated by the SRA,  we adhere to rules and regulations concerning how we charge for our services and you  will always be provided with a written costs estimate before any work is carried out.

Many of our clients prefer to retain our services through a fixed fee annual retainer scheme.  The benefits of this to our clients are as follows:

  • *agreed fixed fees payable monthly or annually
  • *unlimited telephone support for employment related matters from an experienced solicitor
  • *continuity of advice – we do not operate a “call centre” so you will only ever have one or two points of contact dealing with your matter
  • *annual review and updating of contracts, policies and procedures or provision of these documents if they are not  already in existence
  • *regular employment law updates sent electronically at least monthly
  • *12 month contracts with no onerous termination provisions or notice requirements
  • *free places at our regular seminars
  • *discounted rates for in-house training
  • *can be provided with or without insurance to cover the costs associated with tribunal and other employment claims.  Please click here to find out more about our insurance for your employment and Human Resources issues.

 

If you are not looking for a full retained service at the moment then the following services can be provided for an agreed fixed fee and we will consider whether we can work with you  on a fixed fee basis in other matters wherever possible:

  • *review of contracts, consultancy agreements, policies and procedures
  • *updating contracts, consultancy agreements, policies and procedures
  • *provision of contracts,  consultancy agreements, company handbooks, policies and procedures
  • *drafting settlement agreements
  • *advice on post termination restrictive covenants
  • *in house training
