Staff

All our lawyers are litigation solicitors who specialise in what we describe as property litigation. For us, this also includes advisory work, which amounts to about 40% of what we do. We advise on all commercial and residential property issues. Some issues arise out of a dispute and some arise in a more general way.

Fees

We aim to make arrangements that provide clients with reasonable certainty and that reward us for efficiency and results. In relation to high value and/or complex cases we have a preference for sharing risk with our clients. This means we need to understand our clients' objectives. There are a number of methods of structuring a fee arrangement in order to achieve this. They include fixed and conditional fees, contingencies, discounted rates, caps and success fees. Often in structuring an arrangement we use a combination of these methods. We are prepared to consider taking on cases on a no-win-no fee basis (a type of conditional fee agreement) but usually only after a review for which we may charge a fixed fee. In relation to routine cases where the time that will need to be spent is predicable, eg lease renewals (up to a point) and squatters' proceedings, we can offer fixed fees. For clients who need fairly regular support and advice there are advantages in a periodic retainer. For example an annual sum billed quarterly avoids the administration involved in the issue and payment of small bills. We are always very happy to discuss fee arrangements.
