All work we undertake for you will be offered as far as possible on a fixed fee basis.

At the start of your case we will provide you with a bespoke “Flight Plan” that records and set out the specific work that will be undertaken on your behalf during your case.

Your Flight Plan will be built around specific “Stages”. Each Stage will be separate and distinct and the work to be undertaken for you will be in accordance with the legal protocol or procedure that is applicable will be wholly relevant to the circumstance and facts of your case.

At the beginning of each Stage, we will agree the work to be undertaken on your case and the cost, which will then be fixed. At the conclusion of each Stage we will meet with you to discuss how and when the next stage is commenced and agree and fix the cost.

Payment for each Stage is made at the outset of each Stage and where appropriate payment plans are available.

Tailored Services

We believe that by providing a complete case plan at the outset of a case and Staging and fixing costs you will be able to focus on the important thing, namely your case.
