Schedule of Fixed Fee Work available from Forbes Solicitors

The Commercial Team at Forbes Solicitors understand that businesses like to know exactly how much things will cost before proceeding. To help our clients to budget we offer an array of fixed fee options which are designed to remove the cost related uncertainty that can come with instructing a solicitor.

We pride ourselves on understanding the markets within which our clients operate and appreciate that cash flow in any business is critical to its ongoing success. This is particularly stark for those new start-ups who have to balance their day-to-day running costs with their need to take professional advice and ensure that they are fully protected from the outset. We are more than happy to discuss payment terms with you to ensure that you obtain the services you need and assist where we can in achieving your strategic goals.
