We hate hourly rates as much as you do

Transparent pricing

No win, no fee

We offer ‘no win no fee’ payment terms for some commercial matters, where the merits of the case and the nature of defendant permit..

Please contact one of our commercial lawyers, so that they can assess your case and determine if this may apply to you.

Fixed fees

If you prefer certainty, we will set a fixed fee to achieve a specific outcome. This means we do not use hourly rates. The fee is usually payable upon commencement of your matter.

Price list

We dislike hourly rates as much as you do.

Wherever we can, we offer you fixed fees.

That means we do not charge you when we pick up the phone or send an email.

We are big on long term relationships with our clients and we measure the value of our services largely by whether you come back.
