Fixed Fees

We are pleased to offer clients the option of fixed-fees, as we recognise the concern that can be caused by the inherent uncertainty of charging work on a time recorded basis.

Fixed-fees provide our clients with comfort and certainty in knowing that our costs for specified work will be fixed upfront, thereby removing uncertainty.

Fixed fees can be offered on an interval basis, with a fee being agreed for a small section of the work needed, or on a larger scale basis with a fee being agreed for all work involved in proceeding with a case from preliminary contact to resolution.

This allows our clients the security of being able to budget for legal fees, and to make an informed decision at the end of each stage as to how to deal with the next state in an efficient and cost effective manner.

As a starting point, on request Davis Woolfe will prepare and present any prospective clients with a proposed fixed fee for each stage of the litigation process, incorporating not only our fees, but fees charged by third parties such as expert witnesses and counsel where possible. For example, these stages will include the costs of preparing and issuing the claim at court, the costs of preparing witness statements, and the costs of preparing for and attending trial.

Whilst we can estimate the costs by taking into account all foreseeable costs, we will also seek to agree fixed fees for any unforeseeable costs.
