Fixed Fees, No Surprises

We understand that uncertainty about legal fees can be a huge worry for clients, so we have done our best to remedy this.  Below you will find a range of options to price your work.

Fixed Fees

We are able to offer fixed fees on a range of standard services and these are ones that cover most needs over someone’s lifetime.   So, make sure you check the fixed fees prices listed under each service heading.

Estimated Fees

For services that do not fall into the fixed fee bracket, we will give you our best estimate.  This is based on your full instructions and agreement on 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, we will discuss with you a price for each stage of the job.  This would apply to large commercial transactions and some dispute resolution work.

Hourly Rate

For some complex matters including most litigation, our fees will be charged as set out in our engagement letter.  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.
