Fixed Price for Individuals
Trying to understand how legal costs are calculated can be quite frustrating and daunting. At CITYWIDE we offer a number of flexible payment options to ensure that you find the one that suits you best.
- How we calculate our fees
- The likely costs involved to prepare and run your case
- Any additional costs that may be incurred
- Any costs that may be recoverable from, or payable by you to the other party
With this option, there is no financial risk to you. If you lose your case you will not have to pay for Solicitors fees and this is the risk we take on your behalf. If we win your case we take a percentage of the damages (up to 25%).
On some matters, we have fixed fee options available. This means that a lawyer will assess your situation and provide you with a fixed fee to assist with your case. This gives you a level of cost certainty to get you to a particular resolution. For some areas, we are able to do this in stages of your case which gives you even more flexibility.
This is the traditional fee structure which means that a lawyer will assess your case and provide a fully flexible option on an hour-by-hour basis. You will be given information about the likely overall cost of your matter and you will be updated as to these costs.
We will investigate the possibility of funding your case through a legal expense insurance policy. This is a service that comes with some insurance policies and other financial products. It can be used to cover part or all of your costs. Your lawyer can take you through this option if it is available.
Some union and membership organisations offer legal cover within the membership benefits. If you are a member of such an organisation you should inform your lawyer who will be able to give you assistance and advise on the options available. For more information about our fees please call 020 3490 1221 or submit an inquiry form and a member of the team will contact you to discuss your situation.
