Our professional costs are calculated on an hourly basis. Hourly rates vary depending upon the experience and seniority of solicitor, consultant, adviser or paralegal and complexity of the work undertaken. Typically, at TMC Solicitors all work undertaken by Principal Solicitor is charged at £250 per hour, Assistant Solicitors at £200 per hour and trainee solicitors or caseworkers at £160 per hour. We split each hour into 10 units of 06 minutes and when we calculate our fees on hourly rate, we follow the unit calculation. If a particular work was less than 06 minutes, this is rounded up to one unit.
With these calculations, we have estimated our fees please contact our staff for an estimated and competitive quote.
Such fees are the estimate of our costs in individual matters and the final invoice could be more or less from this estimate due to number of factors such as an additional work not covered under the retainer. The initial consultation costs are billed separately and are non-refundable. However, as our good will for potential clients, we do make adjustments if we decide to take on the matter.
The fees quoted above are our estimated professional costs and does not include disbursements that we will incur in the course of our engagement. Such disbursements include, but are not limited to, Home Office visa application fee (s), immigration health surcharge fee (s), UKVI appointment fee (s), courier charges, counsel’s fees, immigration housing inspection report fee and court fees. If there are any large disbursements contemplated, we will advise you of these before incurring them. We reserve the right to require payment in advance for disbursements.
We do offer fixed fees in immigration matters for the convenience of our clients where at the time of instructions, we will agree our fixed professional costs, excluding disbursements, for a particular application, legal representations or appeal.
