When it comes to costs, value is key. We are sensitive to your need to keep costs down. All our engagements start with an assessment of your aspirations and constraints and we tailor our approach accordingly. We want you to feel our advice is good value for your money.
We are always happy to discuss retainers, fixed fees and a range of hourly rates.
For example, if you were interested in a retainer arrangement, we would generally agree an annual fee payable in equal monthly instalments. This means you can budget accurately for legal costs. The fee will vary according to how many employees you have and how much you think you will use us. We usually review the fee after 3 and then 6 months to make sure both you and we are happy the level is a fair one.
Most retainers cover all day-to-day advice, including drafting a defence when a tribunal claim is lodged. Compromise agreements and collective issues such as redundancies or a TUPE transfer would usually be excluded, but here we will generally be able to give you a fixed fee for peace of mind.
