Fixed fees vs hourly fees

fixed, fees

Solicitor fixed fees refer to a predetermined, agreed-upon amount that a solicitor (lawyer) charges for specific legal services, rather than billing by the hour. Fixed fees can provide clients with cost certainty and transparency in legal matters, as they know the exact amount they will pay for the service. These fees can vary depending on the complexity of the case and the type of legal service required. It's essential to discuss and clarify the fixed fees with your solicitor before engaging their services to avoid any misunderstandings about the cost of legal representation.

Solicitor hourly rates are fees charged by solicitors (lawyers) for their services based on the amount of time they spend working on a client's case. These rates can vary significantly depending on several factors, including the solicitor's experience, the location of their practice, the type of legal work involved, and the complexity of the case.

Typically, solicitors bill clients by the hour, and clients are charged for each hour (or portion of an hour) of legal work performed. Hourly rates can range from relatively low for junior associates or lawyers in smaller firms to significantly higher for senior partners in prestigious law firms.

Legal Peace however is a dynamic and modern law firm. As a result and because many of our clients are small businesses or individuals who need more certainty when it comes to their legal bills, we prefer to charge our clients fixed fees at reasonable rates.

It's crucial to discuss and clarify the hourly rates with your solicitor before engaging their services, as well as any additional costs or expenses that may be incurred during the legal process. This helps ensure transparency and a clear understanding of the potential costs involved in your legal matter.
