Charges & Fixed Fees

Many Solicitors practices offer fixed fee services for their clients however their websites are not truly transparent as to their hourly charging rates or as to what their fixed fees actually are.

Here at Laker Legal Solicitors we know that our clients appreciate the peace of mind of knowing at the outset of their case what their costs are likely to be which is precisely why we offer a fixed fee service and why we are always absolutely transparent about our costs.

Our policy is to provide our clients with transparent legal costs without compromising on the quality of that service and our clients will tell you that we deliver this quality assured service time and time again. To see our clients’ feedback, have a browse through some testimonials.

Where it is not possible to provide our clients with a fixed fee for the work they require us to carry out, then we will charge an hourly rate which is discussed in detail below.


If a Solicitor does not provide a fixed fee service for certain legal work then they will charge an hourly rate.

Sometimes a client`s legal fees may become increased by the behaviour of their opponent which can influence the length of time taken to resolve their legal case. In these circumstances solicitors cannot always provide a fixed fee at the outset of the case.

Here at Laker Legal Solicitors in common with other solicitors practices we have hourly charging rates.

We charge a national maximum rate of £230.00 + VAT per hour, for an experienced solicitor.

When you first make contact with us to enquire about our services and whether we can assist you, we are very happy to have a telephone consultation with you without charge or obligation. However, we do not offer “free clinics” or “free initial interviews”. Most people appreciate that nothing is actually “free” and it is not in your best interests to have a free initial interview or clinic appointment and then be charged at a higher rate for the rest of your case. We simply keep your legal costs low throughout your case because we feel that is in your very best interests.

An Unbeatable Combination of Quality, Experience & Value
