Professional fees

We are aware that legal costs play a crucial role in the finances of business owners and clients. We are also aware that professionals must often leave the office and work directly at clients’ offices and premises.

We have never cared for work performed as an end in itself: unless strictly necessary, we avoid becoming involved in drawn out and costly litigation and we know how to negotiate successfully in order to meet our clients’ expectations.

Prevention is better than cure and it is likewise better to obtain legal advice in advance as has always been the case in the Anglo-Saxon world. That is why we work side by side with business owners every day, collaborating on their various needs and resolving any issues which may arise with a view to prevention of future problems.

As we favour an ongoing advisory relationship, we often consider the option of working on the basis of a fixed annual fee.

Our tariffs are, in any case, commensurate with the needs and requirements of each individual client and are agreed on a case-by-case basis, according to how those needs can best be met.

Where an hourly rate is applied, we will provide an estimate of the total cost as well as a detailed breakdown of work carried out and time taken.
