General Civil Advice and Business

As general practice this firm takes on a range of clients and cases. Sometimes the work is preliminary advice, or assistance with a minor or brief legal issue requiring correspondence with other parties or solicitors, and/or creating of legal documentation. Our work is very varied when it comes to legal services and processes.

A typical example of business work would be debt recovery.  Some Debtors will settle their outstanding invoices upon receipt of a 7 day pre-court action letter requesting settlement.  A normal letter, including an initial meeting to discuss the circumstances would be charged at £50 (plus VAT charged at the rate of 20%). 

If you do require us to raise a Court action for you then we will discuss with you the likely costs and outlays given that each case is unique and factors have to be taken into account such as the amount of debt to be pursued, number of Defenders, etc.  Typically, for an undefended action leading to a Decree for a matter less than £5,000 being pursued our fees may be in the region of £400 - £600 (plus VAT charged at the rate of 20%) plus Court outlays of £19 for a sum being pursued less then £300 or £106 for an action being pursued in excess of £300 up to £4,999 to raise the action.  For undefended actions whereby an undefended Decree is obtained for an amount being pursued over £5,000 then our fees may be in the region of £750 (plus VAT charged at the rate of 20%) plus Court outlays of £132 to raise the action.  Our fees will vary depending upon the amount being pursued and the complexity of the matter etc.

In all situations the ethos of our firm is to keep your costs down and we will work with you to try to keep this to a minimum.

Our firm does not currently offer legal aid for these types of matters.
