What's involved and how much will it cost?

Purple Table Big

*Our fixed fees are subject to assumptions around the amount of documentation involved and the complexity of the matter.  We will always discuss these with you in advance before agreeing any fixed fee for any stage of a claim.

Hearing Costs

If the matter proceeds to a contested tribunal hearing, then the costs of our attendance will depend on the length and location of the hearing but are usually (excluding disbursements) in the region of:

  • One-day hearing: £2,000 plus VAT (including preparation time)
  • Multi-day hearings: £2,000 plus VAT (including preparation time) for the first day, and £1,250 plus VAT for each subsequent day

Alternatively, we can instruct a specialist barrister to attend and represent you at the tribunal hearing. Their fees would depend upon the seniority of the barrister, and we will discuss potential fees with you.  We are often able to negotiate competitive fees with a number of barristers’ chambers.  When a barrister is instructed our costs would be limited to our attendance at the hearing to provide ongoing instructions to the barrister and to keep a record of proceedings, which is usually at the rate of in the region of £400 plus VAT per half-day of attendance.
