We offer a range of fee options that are designed to cater for the particular needs of our clients, the demands of their case, and the service level that the client prefers.

We are also open to payment of our fees by instalments.
In certain cases we also offer conditional fee agreements – no win, no fee or no win, low fee, depending on the circumstances of your case.
Our Professional Fees

Our fees are competitive because under the public access scheme we work directly with clients so that there is no need to pay a solicitor as well as a barrister – you only need to pay one lawyer, rather than two.

There is a large spectrum of service providers in the immigration field. Solicitors and barristers with varying levels of experience and expertise are available to instruct, as well as practitioners that are registered with the OISC (Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner). Those practicing by way of registration with the OISC might not be qualified lawyers, and might not be regulated by any other professional body such as the Law Society or the Bar Standards Board. Our fees will not be comparable to many of those providing immigration services because of the difference in qualification, expertise and experience between the various service providers.
Our fees will not include costs that are payable to third parties (referred to as disbursements) such as Home Office fees, Court/ Tribunal fees, and independent experts’ fees. If these costs arise in your case, you will be responsible for paying them.
All fees quoted are exclusive of VAT. VAT will be added at 20% where it is payable. We will clarify this with you at the time that agreement is reached for us to take your case on.
Fixed fees
For most cases we will conduct the work on an agreed fixed fee. This means that you will know the legal expenses associated with your case from the outset. There will be no extra charges for telephone calls, photocopying or printing.
The scope of the work covered by the fixed fee agreement will be set out in the client care letter so that you know precisely what you are paying for. We will take time to evaluate the scope of work required, the complexity of the work, and the time the work is likely to take before agreeing a fee with you.

Consultations enable you to seek advice in relation to your immigration matter with an experienced immigration barrister.

Professional fees for a consultation with one of our barristers is typically:
Senior barrister (10+ years experience): £400
Experienced barrister (5-10 years experience): £300
Junior barrister (up to 5 years experience): £200
Payment will be expected in advance of the consultation.
The fees might be higher if the subject matter of your case is more complex, or requires more time due to the volume of paperwork for instance. In any event, this will be agreed before the consultation takes place.

We would be happy to discuss various fee options with you, as well as the level of service you require. If the fee quoted for our full service is not within your budget, we can explore other ways in which we can provide you with advice, assistance and guidance so that you can benefit from our expertise.
