At Parke Lawyers, we believe that our clients are entitled to be fully informed of the cost of legal services both before and during our solicitor-client relationship. We recognise the cost of legal services is an important factor for clients and maintain a commitment to charging fees which are fair, competitive and satisfactory to our clients.

Clients are encouraged to raise any questions they may have about fees at any time. The fees we charge, and the way those fees are calculated, vary depending on the type and complexity of the matter we deal with on behalf of a client.

With some matters, we may be able to quote you a “fixed” fee before we begin work on your behalf. Fixed fees are common in property transactions and certain corporate and commercial transactions.

Many matters will be dealt with on a “fee for time” basis. You will be billed for the time the lawyer actually works on your file. Your lawyer will, prior to beginning work for you, inform you of both the hourly rate and give you an estimate of the cost to complete the matter.
