The Solicitors Regulation Authority has provided guidance on price transparency on 6th December 2018. In accordance with the transparency rules, we set out below our fixed fees and work in relation to immigration matters. Please note, we have not outlined fees for asylum work as this area is outside the remit of the transparency rules.
At ADL Solicitors, we encourage clients to have an initial consultation so we can offer an hourly rate to deal with your case or a fixed fee to complete it.
Many Solicitors practices offer fixed fee services for their clients however their websites are not truly transparent as to their hourly charging rates or as to what their fixed fees actually are.
Here at ADL Solicitors we know that our clients appreciate the peace of mind of knowing at the outset of their case what their costs are likely to be which is precisely why we offer a fixed fee service and why we are always absolutely transparent about our costs.
Our policy is to provide our clients with transparent legal costs without compromising on the quality of that service and our clients will tell you that we deliver this quality assured service time and time again.
Where it is not possible to provide our clients with a fixed fee for the work they require us to carry out, then we will charge an hourly rate which is discussed in detail below.
OUR SOLICITORS` HOURLY CHARGING RATES
If a Solicitor does not provide a fixed fee service for certain legal work then they will charge an hourly rate.
Sometimes a client`s legal fees may become increased by the behaviour of their opponent which can influence the length of time taken to resolve their legal case. In these circumstances solicitors cannot always provide a fixed fee at the outset of the case.
Here at ADL Solicitors in common with other solicitors practices we have hourly charging rates in line with the lower end of City of London Law Society member fee rates which translates to
Partners £425+VAT per hour
Senior Associates £350+VAT per hour
Junior Associates and Paralegals £299+VAT per hour
This compares very favourably with the fees of comparable firms operating in the City of London.
LITIGATION IS SUBJECT TO A 20% UPLIFT IN FEES DUE TO THE COMPLEXITY OF RULES WE HAVE TO COMPLY WITH UNDER THE CPR.
