The Client Experience

We know how hard it can be to tell one law firm from another. We all look the same, have the same range of services and claim to have the best legal minds and service to boot.

Naturally we will put our hand up to having all these four qualities, but we don’t consider them to be unique. In our view, they are givens which clients should automatically expect and receive from any legal firm.

So what makes Client Legal Solutions different?

It’s the Client Experience you receive from us and which sets us apart. It’s about your entire journey with the firm and interactions you have with us.

Caring for clients

As our tagline suggests, caring for our clients is at our core and in our eyes, is equally as important to providing the best legal solutions to solve your issue. It’s part of our DNA and it comes from the values of our directors which have been embedded into the culture of the firm.

We care for you like you are part of a close family, and which is demonstrated in the way we talk to you, the way we interact with you and the way we make you feel when dealing with us. It also forms the basis for ensuring our systems and procedures are designed with your needs in mind and not ours.

This is our core promise to you.

Fixed Fees, No Surprises

We understand that uncertainty about legal fees can be a huge worry for clients. We have tried to take some of that worry away by offering different ways of pricing our services.

Fixed Fees

We can offer fixed fees on many of our core, standard services such as Wills, EPOA, Trusts and residential conveyancing.  Please refer to the specific Service Page for pricing.

Estimated Fees

For services that do not fall into the fixed fee bracket, we will give you our best estimate once we have taken your full instructions and agreed with you what work needs to be done. We will review that estimate regularly with you and advise you if we think it is going to be exceeded.

Stage Pricing

For ongoing matters such as large commercial transactions and some dispute resolution, we can discuss with you a price for each stage of the job before moving onto the next stage.

Hourly Rate

For some complex matters including most litigation, our fees will be charged as set out in our Client Contract but we will do our best to give you an indication of the likely overall cost.


What our clients say

I recently worked with Max Palzer when purchasing an E-commerce based gifting business. I was completely new to the process having only ever dealt with the sale and purchase of property. Max guided me through the process end to end, ensuring I knew what to look out for as we went through due diligence and ultimately through to settlement. Max was excellent to deal with, was firm but fair when dealing with other parties on our behalf and got me through some very difficult parts of the transaction. With settlement now complete Max continues to provide excellent assistance and advice as I settle into running the new business. Thanks Max.
