Having the ability to obtain legal advice for a fixed retainer fee adds value to our clients’ businesses, allows us to become accustomed to their commercial and internal dealings and avoids costly errors being made. Essentially, we are able to form part of our clients’ teams.
We are more than happy to agree fixed prices for projects at the outset. The fixed retainer fee will remain just that unless there is a significant change in the type of work involved, timescales or parameters of the project. Any increases in fixed retainer fees are always discussed and agreed with clients prior to them being implemented. We also give clients the option to spread the cost of the fixed retainer fee across a number of months to facilitate cash flow.
The fixed retainer fee structure gives absolute transparency to the cost of our legal work and enables clients to budget a project efficiently at the outset. If a project is transactional in nature, we will also consider contingent fees on a matter-by-matter basis.
