SRA TRANSPARENCY RULES - GROVE SOLICITORS FEES FOR EMPLOYMENT, IMMIGRATION CONVEYANCING AND LICENSING APPLICATIONS
Grove Solicitors works as efficiently as possible and only charges for the time we spend on a matter and relevant third party expenses, which are listed below in relation to Employment, Immigration, Conveyancing and Licensing Applications.
Our fees include all time recorded in our time keeping system and we are always willing and able to provide a breakdown of time spent by each person, together with expenses and any other costs. Hourly rates charged by the firm range from £250-£300 (excluding VAT @20%) for Partners who are the fee earners of the firm.
We will normally provide cost estimates at the outset of all matters. These cost estimates are not capped or fixed fees and our actual costs may be more or less than the estimated amount. The conduct of other parties and other unexpected complications which emerge during the course of the matter may affect both the cost of our work and how long it takes for the matter to be concluded. We monitor the time recorded and advise our clients if the estimate is likely to be exceeded.
Our team has over 38 years of collective experience in delivering high quality work in all matters. Our team is run and managed by Mr. Stanley Okere who has over 19 years’ experience in delivering high quality work in all matters.
