Dear Richard, My warmest congratulations on the result of the case. I am conscious that this was largely due to your brilliant command of the circumstances, particularly as they were characterised by the complexity which developed over the many, many months. Thank you also for the sterling suggestion to instruct Louise O'Neill [barrister]. I am exceedingly grateful to you both...

We may be able to offer you a fixed fee payment structure. This means that you have a complete understanding of how much proceedings will cost throughout the duration of your case. Fixed fees are most appropriate for those with less complicated separations and, in particular those cases which do not need you to go to court.

option A

If you fall within the following description, we may act for you for a fixed fee, that is a fixed quote that cannot increase:
Neither you nor your spouse partner:
are the director of more than one company or a sole trader operating more than one business are the beneficiary of a trust have an income of more than £60,000 pa gross any cases where the net assets of you and your spouse are more than £1,000,000 or have property located abroad Telephone us on 01225 471094 to discuss this option in more detail.

option B

In complex cases fixed fees are not workable as the amount of work involved can be highly unpredictable. We will charge for any work that you ask us to undertake on the basis of an hourly fee – please telephone to discuss.

option C

DIY Service. If you do not want a solicitor to ‘stand in your shoes’ and act for you, we are happy to provide you with advice and assistance on demand. In other words, you may decide to seek advice only once a week, once a month or only every few months. The rest of the time you will continue to act for yourself. We can act for you in the run up to a hearing and retain a barrister to represent you in court.
