We have set out the hourly rates for our lawyers within a three-tier system that is reflective of the different levels of seniority, expertise, experience and knowledge our clients benefit from.
Our standard starting hourly rates are as below and may be higher depending on the individual case:
- (Tier 1) – Senior Partner – Paul Turner: £350 plus VAT
- (Tier 2) – Partners, In-house Counsel and Senior Solicitors: £300 plus VAT
- (Tier 3) – Junior Lawyers & Senior Paralegals: £150 plus VAT
Our senior partner with over 15 years immigration experience is recognised by the Legal 500 as a leading individual within the immigration field. Our partner, in-house counsel and senior lawyers also individually hold over 15 years immigration experience while our junior lawyers and senior paralegals range from trainees to experienced personnel with many years immigration experience; also highly competent and able to handle your matter. Further details of individual experience and qualifications of our lawyers can be found under our About Us page.
All matters are supervised by a partner of the firm and therefore all matters will require the involvement of a partner. In some instances your matter may be crossed between the tiers at different stages depending on the complexity of the matter.
We offer competitive hourly rates but understand the wish of clients to have certainty as to their total liability in respect of costs. Therefore, in many cases we are willing offer a fixed fee in respect of our costs and this will be tailored, according to the work that we anticipate will be involved, the complexity of the case and the seniority of the lawyer required.
The time spent on each case van vary from 5 hours to 60 hours depending on the nature, history, compliance and complexity of your background, circumstances and documents. It is impossible to confirm the fixed fee or hourly rate and total anticipated costs your case may incur, until we complete the initial consultation stage and obtain a clearer picture and plan of action with all your required documents forwarded to us. Our fixed fees as indicated are more achievable for a client where you satisfy the immigration criteria and can provide all required documents, with there being no obvious obstacles in your case that could result in an unsuccessful application or appeal.
Where fixed fees are not possible to charge, our time is charged at hourly rates that comply with professional guidance and depend upon the seniority of the lawyer involved.
