How To Minimise Your Fees

minimise-your-legal-fees

Our standard fee rate is £345 per hour, plus VAT at the current rate of 20%   But there are a number of discounts available to you, which allow you to reduce your fee rate substantially.

If you prepay time (“prepay” meaning that you have paid for time before you use it), then you will get a discount on our standard rate.  The minimum prepay amount is two hours.  This gives you a ‘net’ rate of £275.

Or, you can get even bigger discounts if you ‘bulk buy’ time in advance of using it.  Buy 10 hours at the ‘net’ rate of £245 per hour or 20 hours at the ‘net’ rate of £195 per hour.

What You Pay (including VAT)
Hourly rate 2 hours 10 hours 20 hours
£345 + VAT £828 £4,140 £8,280
£275 + VAT (minimum of 2 hours) £660
£245 + VAT (minimum of 10 hours) £2,940
£195 + VAT (minimum of 20 hours) £4,680
