Our approach to pricing

Legal costs shouldn't be a mystery to the people paying them. Our no surprises approach to charging means that we'll tell you in advance what you can expect to pay for our advice.

So we can provide you with an accurate costing, we will discuss with you up front what you are looking to achieve and what you would like us to do to help you. We will then send you an engagement letter setting out:

  • Our understanding of your needs
  • Details of the services we will provide
  • A price for these
  • Details of when and how payment should be made

It's then up to you if you'd like to work with us.

If we provide legal advice to you in our initial discussion, this may be invoiced to you whether or not you decide to proceed with us.

If you decide to work with us we'll look for every way we can to keep the cost of your job down. With Gibson Sheat you’re not paying for a massive infrastructure along with your job, and we ensure all work is carried out by the most appropriate person within the firm.

If issues arise, outside of our control, which have a cost implication, we'll let you know at the time. You can be confident that there will be no nasty surprises when you receive our invoice.
