Flexible fee structure


Our approach

• we deliver value for money;
we understand that our clients work within budgets and we assist them with managing their legal costs;
we are open and transparent in notifying and detailing costs incurred and justifying the level of our fee;
• we ensure that the work is undertaken by the person best suited to the task, taking account of the level
  of experience, the complexity of the work and cost efficiency.

LDS provides the highest level of expertise and full service approach; our fees are reflective of our levels of expertise and service. In this context, we believe that we can offer client true value for money.


Our efficient and streamlined service ensures that no unnecessary costs are incurred.

We are pleased to agree fixed fees where appropriate. Alternatively, our fees are principally calculated by reference to the time spent by each member of the firm. We discuss fee structures with each client at the time of instruction.


Disbursements such as application, filing and counsel fees, courier charges and other expenses are charged as additional items. Whilst we do not usually charge for nominal photocopying, we normally charge for bulk copying.


VAT is charged in addition to our hourly rates or set fees, where applicable.
