Our fees

We undertake legal aid funded and privately funded work.

For privately funded work, we generally charge an hourly rate depending upon the complexity of the matter and the experience of the barrister instructed. Hourly rates vary from £200 to £500 per hour (plus VAT where applicable) (in the very unusual and specialist circumstances that the rate is higher than this then this will be clearly communicated to you in advance).
