Knapps Lawyers Fixed Fees Icon

BENEFIT FROM

FIXED FEES, NO SURPRISES

We understand that uncertainty about legal fees can be a huge worry for clients. We have tried to take some of that worry away by offering different ways of pricing our services.

Fixed Fees

We are able to offer fixed fees on some of our core services including Wills, EPOA and some residential conveyancing and Trust work. Please refer to the specific Service Page for pricing.

Estimated Fees

For services that do not fall into the fixed fee bracket, we will give you our best estimate once we have taken your full instructions and agreed with you what work needs to be done. We will review that estimate regularly with you and advise you if we think it is going to be exceeded.

Stage Pricing

For ongoing matters such as large commercial transactions and some dispute resolution, we can discuss with you a price for each stage of the job before moving onto the next stage.

Hourly Rate

For some complex matters including most litigation, our fees will be charged as set out in Our Knapps Service Promise but we will do our best to give you an indication of the likely overall cost.
