PLEASE NOTE:

This list is not exhaustive but is intended to provide you with an idea of the range of expenses, in addition to solicitors’ costs, that can be incurred in dealing with your case.  Photocopying charges and the costs of fax transmissions which form part of our overheads are normally included within the service at the expense rate quoted.  However, we reserve the right to charge for these separately in the event that the amount of photocopying and the use of fax transmissions or other technology reasonably require this.

If your instructions mean we have to work outside normal office hours, we reserve the right to increase the level of the hourly rate/s.  You will be notified in writing of any increased rate.

The rates maybe higher if for example the matter becomes more complex than expected in which event we will notify you.
