The most commonly used pricing models for legal services are charges by an hourly rate, a fixed fee or an agreed brief fee and refreshers. A brief fee is a fixed fee which covers preparation for a hearing and the first day. A refresher is a fixed fee for each subsequent day of the hearing. Fees will include VAT where applicable.
Factors which might influence the timescale of the provision of legal services include the complexity of the matter; the availability of the client, of Richard and any relevant third party; the volume of documents to review; the need for additional information or documents; court waiting times and the urgency of the matter.
