Fee estimates

Added Monday 2nd March 2015

We have developed a fee estimate tool designed to implement the long-standing but little-observed conduct rule to provide "best possible" fee estimate information at the outset of every instruction. Clients must approve a detailed breakdown of costs which becomes an agreed limit until a further estimate is approved.  This invokes the letter of Rule 2.03 of the Solicitors' Code of Conduct and helps law firms avoid breaching the Code.
