Where we find there is a conflict of interest or a potential conflict of interest, our clients are firstly clearly informed of such conflicts and our clients are then advised of avenues available and where necessary clients are referred to another firm of attorneys.
The fees charged are determined by the following factors namely the nature of the matter; the complexity; the seriousness/importance of the outcome, the volume of work involved; the time that it would take to be finalized; and experience of the person attending to the matter. We are more than willing to discuss and negotiate the fee with our clients. It has always been our practice to furnish our clients with a fairly itemized account. We therefore have no difficulty in complying with any of your billing structures and/or formats.
