Not all people are alike, neither are all matters. We acknowledge this and offer appropriate sensible retainer terms.
No Win No Fee
If we assess you’ve been wronged and have a right to compensation from an insurer, such as in a motor vehicle claim or common law (eg shopping centre) claim, we’ll back you with a no win no fee retainer. This means we don’t get paid til you do. The way we determine the amount is by hourly rates.
Hourly rates are a traditional fee structure; you are billed for a lawyer’s time writing letters, talking, drafting documents and importantly thinking how to go about all that. You are not billed for research being a task to obtain the knowledge required to perform the task.
If you prefer the certainty of a fixed fee we will set a fixed fee to achieve a specific outcome. This means we do not use hourly rates. The fee is usually payable upon commencement.
