Our Fees

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 £220 per hour, and trainee solicitors or caseworkers at £180 per hour.

We split each hour into 10 units of 06 minutes and when we calculate our fees on an hourly rate, we follow the unit calculation. If a particular work was less than 06 minutes, this is rounded up to one unit.


At the outset of the matter, we provide an estimate of our costs, based on the confirmed instructions, and these estimated costs are then entered into our formal client care letter, that we send to you.

The initial consultation fee is billed separately and is non-refundable. However, as our goodwill for potential clients, we may adjust the consultation fee in our professional fees for a substantive matter, upon confirmed instructions.

We have qualified solicitors, caseworkers, and paralegals who may work on your matter. A qualifying solicitor supervises the work of caseworkers and paralegals.
