HMK Legal’s charges
HMK Legal has no expensive premises or infrastructure, so with minimal overheads HMK Legal can provide you with a quality service for a fraction of the cost charged by law firms. You just pay for quality advice from an employment law specialist – and not the trimmings.
After an initial free consultation, either over the phone or face to face, a number of charging options are available if you decide to go ahead and instruct HMK Legal to carry out the work for you. Helen Kay will discuss with you which is the most suitable option for you. These include:
- hourly rate (based on the amount of time taken to do the work);
- fixed fee;
- fixed monthly retainer (not applicable to individuals).
Where work is undertaken on an hourly rate basis, you will be given a clear estimate of the likely overall cost and regular cost updates.
For businesses, the hourly rate is £100 per hour. At HMK Legal we appreciate that not everyone has the same financial resources and therefore discounted rates are available for individuals (£50 per hour), and for charities and not-for-profit organisations (£75 per hour). And as HMK Legal is not currently required to be VAT registered, there is no VAT to pay on top of this.
Work covered by legal expenses insurance can also be undertaken.
