We aim to be transparent when managing your legal costs.


During your fixed fee initial consultation, you will be provided with an estimate of the fees to be included in respect of your matter.


You can instruct us according to your budget whether it is to simply seek advice, prepare your case and/or represent you at court.


We work with extremely experienced and expert family counsel who are keen to provide fixed fees for representation at court, meaning that we will endeavour to provide you with a fixed fee for work conducted whenever possible.


You will be provided with a monthly invoice and any change to the fixed fee/estimate of costs provided will be communicated to you before extra work is undertaken so that you do not receive any unpleasant surprises.


If necessary, we can work with litigation funding specialists to seek external funding of your case by way of a loan.
