Fees can be discussed prior to the commencement of work. Value for money is assured as fees for each case can be assessed individually and are based upon the complexity and value of the case, seniority of counsel and time spent in preparation.

All barristers will consider undertaking work on a CFA basis, where applicable. A robust management system ensures that agreed turn-around times are fulfilled.
