DEBT MATTERS- FEES

DEBT MATTERS

The table below sets out our fees where your opponent does not dispute your debt claim.  If the fees are fixed we will say so, if we do not say then the fees are estimated fees. We can offer you fixed fees when we take your instructions.

The fees in the table do not cover fees for the enforcement of the judgement. We do not deal with enforcement of judgements but we can guide you on how you can enforce your County Court judgement within 6 years.  Fees will change if the other side disputes your claim. Further fees will depend on how much more work will be undertaken.

 

DEBT YOU WANT TO RECOVER OUR LEGAL FEE ( VAT EXCLUDED)
£2,000 to £5,000 £700 – £1000 if case is in the County Court
£5,001 – £10,000 £850 – £1,500 if case is in the County Court
£10,001 – £50,000 £1,600 – £2,500 if case is in the County Court
£50,000- £100,000 £1500 – £5,000 if the case is in the High Court. The fee will depend on which stage the case settles at. You will not be charged more fees because a debt is more, you will be charged fees based on the procedures in the court and the practice directions in the High Court and the complexity of you case.

Fees where your opponent disputes your claim and we have to carry out further work than that carried out above

We can charge a fixed fee or hourly fee depending on how much work needs to be carried out.

Litigation can be complicated and disputed work can attract up to 100 hours work. Your fees can therefore range between £1500 to £24,000 and more in cases that are complicated or have numerous documents, witnesses or Defendants or Claimants.  We will always give you an indication of fees when you consult with us.
