TRANSPARENCY ABOUT OUR PRICING AND SERVICES
We are required by the Solicitor’s Regulation Authority to publish information on the services we provide and the prices that we charge.
At Brunswick Solicitors our Personal Injury department can offer a conditional-fee agreement. This is more commonly known as a ‘No Win, No Fee’ agreement.
A No Win, No Fee agreement, is an arrangement between you (the client) and Brunswick solicitor when making a legal claim. This simply means you will not be liable to pay any fees for your solicitor’s services. You will only pay legal fees if your claim is successful, which is typically a percentage of the compensation amount obtained.
The areas we can offer a no win no fee agreement is:
Road traffic accidents
Accidents at work
Accidents in public places
Please call our offices and ask to speak to a member of the Personal Injury department for further information.
Some of our services are offered on an hourly rate basis and as many of our clients’ matters are complex and often involve multiple parties, there is rarely a typical case. Our clients are given an estimate of costs after our initial meeting or as part of the engagement process. There are some areas where we are able to be more indicative and, as in accordance with the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) guidance on price transparency, we have published our price and service information where it is possible to be upfront about charges without knowing all the details of the matter.
We have set out the hourly rates for lawyers at different levels.
The below rates and fee estimates are exclusive of VAT. Professional fees will be subject to VAT at 20% where this is applicable.
These rates are subject to annual review.
Partner / Solicitors / Legal Executives / Consultant at £250.00 plus VAT per hour

You may be required to pay for any expenses incurred in the conduct of your matter. Such expenses are usually called disbursements which we will be required to pay directly to the relevant third party (other person or body).
Such expenses include and are not limited to the following: Court fees, barrister fees, translations of documents, translator for hearings, postage fees, land registry fees, search fees, Notice of transfer fee.
We have little control over such expenses and these will vary widely depending on the complexity of your matter and the work required. You will be advised of these and your options from the start of your case.
The estimates set out here have been provided to give a range of likely fees for standard applications. Once we have further information about your personal circumstances and the nature of the assistance you require, we may be able to agree a fixed fee.
Your fee estimate or fixed fee would be agreed prior to us formalising our engagement with you.
