This would involve us taking a percentage of your damages for our costs, this percentage would never be more than 35%, this is payable to us by you in the event of success only, and at the end of the case when the damages are received. As we are not currently VAT registered, VAT would not be charged.
Success in relation to the Contingency Fee is defined above, under the main funding agreements that may be suitable for your case section.
The services included for this price, would be all work mentioned in both key stages of the claim below, subject to the conditions being met in the funding agreement. The services do not include representation by a Barrister, or any Appeal made by you or on your behalf.
The Contingency Fee may be a more cost effective way for you to proceed compared to the hourly rate basis below. This is because providing you comply with the conditions you only pay us if you are successful.
If we act for you on an hourly rate basis, our charges would be based on our hourly rates.
Mr Leslie Rose would be doing the work. Leslie’s hourly rate is currently £218 phr, Leslie’s experience and qualifications are set out below.
If you wish to instruct us on an hourly rate basis we would need to meet and discuss the complexity of your matter, then seek to give you an estimate of the cost. You can then decide if you wish to instruct us or not on this basis, or whether other agreements would be more suitable for you.
As explained above we would always advise you if we believed the likely cost of the matter was going to outweigh the damages you would receive, to enable you to decide if you wanted to proceed or not.
We cannot provide the actual costs due to variables but have set out an average cost below. (this is just an average, the actual cost could be more or less)
As we are not currently VAT registered, VAT will not be charged by us.
The services included under this option would cover all work mentioned in both key stages of the claim below, subject to the number of hours work you require us to do, and the payment conditions being met.
The services do not include representation by a Barrister, or any Appeal made by you or on your behalf.
If you instruct us on a fixed fee basis, the total costs owed will be the amount we agree to do the work for.
The services included for the fixed fee price would include the piece of work that we agree to do for you under any key stage below.
We cannot say exactly how much our fixed fee would be as it depends on the complexity of the task you ask us to complete.
For example if you asked us to assess merits but the evidence was limited we may be able to do this very quickly, but if there were extensive documents to review this could take much longer.
Below is an average cost of some of the more common pieces of work you may ask us to do under the fixed fee agreement. At present we are not vat registered, and vat would not be charged in addition to the sum mentioned. Please note this is just an average, and your individual case may be more or less. When we meet to discuss your matter, we will provide you with a more accurate estimate.
