For immigration matters, we routinely offer a fixed fee option to our clients.
Our engagement letter/client care letter should confirm your fee structure and associated terms and conditions. It is important to note that fixed fee arrangements are retainer arrangements whereby you agree to retain our services until case conclusion/outcome in order to take advantage of a discounted and pre agreed fee. Please be advised that having agreed fixed fee, if you withdraw your instructions, we will not be able to issue any refund.
In cases of withdrawn instructions or abortive work or substantial changes to original instructions, dependent on your billing model, you may be liable to pay the full fees agreed to or, at a bare minimum, all work already completed will be subject to our minimum hourly rates of £217 per hour.
