Fees

Fixed fees

Almost all of our transactional work that we undertake is based on fixed fees. Many other firms only provide estimates, we don’t – instead, we give you certainty.

This helps to ensure that you can budget accordingly, that you don’t have to worry about surprises and we can just get on and help you with your transaction and focus on getting your deal done.

In some transactions we will scope out the transaction with you and build the fixed fee around how you see the transaction unfolding and what you want us to do. We can add in fixed fee building blocks to accommodate add-ons that may or may not be needed. We can also add in fixed fee ranges if you prefer that or even give you fixed fees for a specified number of negotiations. We are flexible. It is up to you and we will work with you to come up with a clear scope of engagement that you are happy with and a fixed fee arrangement that meets your requirements.

We have a number of annual retainer services (eg company administration, employment, data protection and commercial contract support) that are supplied on annual fixed fees. We can also supply services based on fixed fees that are based on daily secondments.

For many entrepreneurial businesses they simply want a ‘red flag’ review or a bespoke document drafted for a fixed fee – we do all of that.


Many businesses worry about the level of professional fees that they are charged when instructing professional advisers. Our aim is to provide our services at competitive prices and make sure that you have from the outset complete clarity on how we will charge. We are under a duty to ensure that our fees are fair and not excessive. Your business is very important to us and if you are unhappy with our charges then please contact, Stuart Hendry, Senior Partner who would like to know.


New Clients

If you are instructing us for the first time, we would like to thank you for giving us the opportunity of working with you. Please note that we are required by law to carry out various checks to verify your identify as well as the source of any funds involved in the transaction we are being instructed in connection with. We are not permitted to undertake any work for your business until the necessary identity checks have been completed, so please help us to deal with this quickly by responding to us with any relevant information that we request. More details about these checks are set out in our Standard Terms of Business.

Existing Clients

If you are an existing client of the firm and instructing us for a second or subsequent time, we would like to thank you for your continued loyalty and support.


The mantra of the firm is to help you get the result you want, on time and on budget. Much of the work that we do is based on fixed fees to ensure there are no surprises.
