We prefer to work on a fixed fee basis. Our quotes clearly state fees structure in advance of engagement so there are no surprises of hidden fees at later stages.  This will give a clear idea to you and your client the level of our fees in advance and a budget can be set accordingly.  We list in advance as best we can what other costs are to be expected.

General disbursements and everyday expenses such as travel are included in our fees.

If we are charging on an hourly rate, we will provide an estimate of the amount of work required in advance and keep the client informed unless there is special reason that prevent us from doing so.

*Fees do vary from project to project so best thing is to contact us to obtain a quote specific for your needs.
