Cost Effective Advice
Underpinning everything is our commitment to providing cost effective advice. We do everything that we can to ensure that our clients do not pay for anything other than our advice, which we are able to provide in the most efficient manner possible.
We do not spend money in the traditional law firm way and these savings are reflected in our charges.
We find that on a like for like basis, our total bill tends to be approximately half of other large Oxfordshire law firms and one third of equivalently sized London based firms.
These cost savings are entirely due to efficiencies in management and working methods.
Our overheads are minimal, with the whole firm situated in serviced offices or working remotely. This provides us with huge savings as compared to the traditional law firm model of leasing and fitting out expensive office space.
We have implemented the most appropriate innovations in relation to technology and knowledge management to ensure that our lawyers work as efficiently as possible. Our agile working technology ensures that our lawyers can work securely and respond comprehensively to clients, at any time, wherever they are.
Our knowledge management strategy ensures that our lawyers don’t waste time any time in searching for relevant information. Our lawyers have the right information at their fingertips, wherever they are. This means that our clients do not pay for the time taken to search for relevant information.
Our clients will always have the same lawyer as a contact throughout their relationship with our firm. Consequently, our clients never have to pay for any lawyers “reading into” or “getting up to speed” on their matter. We do not charge our clients for internal briefings.
As a smaller firm, we do not employ trainees or junior lawyers. Consequently, our clients never have to pay for (whether directly or indirectly) training and development of junior lawyers. All our lawyers are senior, highly experienced and technically brilliant.
We do not spend money on all those extras that clients of other firms pay for indirectly. For example, we do not spend money on corporate hospitality. We know that our clients would rather have a smaller bill than be invited to a corporate social event. However, we do enjoy getting to know our clients socially over a coffee, lunch or even dinner!
Our close relationship with our clients is developed over a long period through providing an excellent service at a fair price.
