Price Transparency

We are committed to providing clear and transparent arrangements for the charging of our fees in all matters. You will always be provided with a quote or an estimate, in writing, once you have provided us with sufficient information regarding the work you would like us to carry out for you.

The Solicitor’s Regulation Authority requires that we publish price and service information in relation to the following areas of work, which you will find set out below:

Injury Law

We will discuss funding and fees with you from the start, before you incur any cost.

If Legal Aid is available for your case, we will direct you as we do not carry our civil legal aid work apply

If Legal Aid is not available for your case, we can offer fixed fees and pay as you go instalments and "No Win No Fee" in suitable cases.

We will always give a clear written indication of our fees and the money we expect to pay out on your behalf during the case at the start and from time to time during the proceedings so you always know so far as is possible the costs you have agreed to incur.

Legal Aid is not available for Personal Injury Claims.

You could choose to fund the case yourself but most of our clients opt for our No Win No Fee arrangement. This gives you full legal representation with no upfront charges and no legal costs to pay if you lose.

No Win No Fee is more correctly called a Conditional Fee Agreement but it still means that if you lose you don’t pay us any legal fees.

The Government has made changes recently so that people making a claim have "stake" in the process. Under the new arrangements you pay up to a maximum of 25% of your compensation towards your own legal fees only if you win but never more than that and you can rest assured that our experts guarantee to recover maximum compensation for you.

We refer to our law courts as Tribunals

Hourly rates –

Grade A – Partners and Senior Solicitors over 8 years Post Qualification Experience – £275.00 to £500.00 plus VAT

Range of costs:

For a 1-day hearing depends on the complexity of the case the range of costs is £1000-4,000.00 to £8,000.00 plus VAT and disbursements, although this does depend on how complex the issues are and the volume of documentation involved and the number of witnesses.

Anticipated disbursements – Barrister’s fees:

Dealing with preliminary hearing – £500.00 to £1,000.00 plus VAT

Attending a meeting to provide advice – £500.00 to £2,000.00 plus VAT

Dealing with the final hearing or mediation – £750.00 to £2,000.00 plus VAT (This will be subject to confirmation at time)

The fees will depend upon the seniority of the Barrister who is instructed.

The main stages of the case are as follows:

    • Attending meeting with you to discuss your case and take instructions and review the documentation you have available and provide any initial advice.
    • Prepare Tribunal forms setting out details of your claim and the background.
    • Preparing a response to a claim brought against you.
    • Drafting any additional necessary documentation.
    • Continuing to review and advise on the merits of pursuing or defending a charge.
    • Advising on the value.
    • Advising and dealing with disclosure of documentation and bundles of documents for hearing.
    • Interviewing witnesses and taking detailed witness statements.
    • Continuing to review and advise on the claim or Defence.
    • Prepare details chronology and list of issues in dispute.
    • Dealing with negotiations and any settlement discussions.
    • Make final preparations for hearing and instruct Barrister to deal with hearing.

Not all cases can be dealt with in one day at the Tribunal and so for a two-day hearing, the costs will increase and the range is likely to be up to £10,000.00 plus VAT and, in addition, Barrister’s fees will increase, likely up to £2,500.00 plus VAT for the hearing.

Three-day hearing or more

If two days is not sufficient for the Tribunal final hearing, then fees will increase again and will likely be in the region of £14,000.00 or more plus VAT, and the fees will increase proportionately depending on the number of additional days the Tribunal hearing lasts for. In relation to the Barrister’s fees, these will also increase proportionately and it will be necessary to agree the Barrister’s fees separately, depending upon the actual number of days the Tribunal hearing will last.
