If you do wish to become our client, the majority of our cases are undertaken on a fixed fee basis, and the costs will vary according to the complexity of the case. On some occasions, it might be more appropriate for us to charge on an hourly basis. All disbursements are in addition to the fixed fee, and we charge 4% of our fees for postage, packaging, telecommunication charges, copying charges, stationary, and sundries. If you are subject to VAT, this will be added to the costs.

Further information about our charges, in accordance with the regulations issued by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA). 

We do not include information about some categories of work e.g., asylum, deportation and appeal preparation. This is because these vary widely according to the circumstances of the case and the SRA has indicated they do not need to be published. We would, of course, always be happy to provide you with a quote following an initial consultation. All of our team have a wealth of experience in making successful and complex applications to the Home Office and we take pride in being one of the best niche immigration firms in London.

We endeavour to obtain competitive rates for all third-party work undertaken, and we will always ensure you approve any third-party quotation ahead of committing to the service.
