In the event that proceedings become defended then the Dispute Resolution team will confirm the hourly charge out rate applicable for the solicitor(s) dealing with the claim for you. High court matters and / or claims for an immediate injunction are costed and billed on a hourly time spent basis although we will try to agree a fee with you for each stage.
Disbursements are to be paid in advance and upon request pursuant to our terms and conditions.
We will charge a fixed fee of £12.00 plus VAT for letters of claim for unpaid debts where there are no known grounds for defending the claim.
All charges are subject to discussion in the event that high volumes of letters of claim are requested.
Legal fees vary from case to case depending upon several factors, including complexity of claims brought, the amount of witness and other evidence required to defend your position, the number of issues in dispute and whether preliminary points of law are to be determined at a preliminary hearing in advance of the main trial.
We do not take on work that requires legal aid.
