Funding your Dispute Resolution Case

We offer an initial fixed fee consultation to discuss your case and to give you our initial advice. If your case proceeds further we usually charge for our services on the basis of time spent at an hourly rate, but in many cases we can agree a fixed fee with you. In all cases, we will provide you with a written estimate of the likely costs and expenses involved at the outset of your case. Litigation is, however, high unpredictable and it may be necessary to update our costs estimates as your case proceeds.
