3PB is committed to being as transparent as possible in relation to price and service standards when instructing one of our barristers.

Please contact us directly using the contact details at the bottom of this page for a quote in relation to your particular matter.

Timescales

Timescales for your case may vary depending on factors such as barristers’ availability, the complexity of your case and work needed, the need for additional documents, the other side’s approach and the Courts availability for listing your matter.

The timings will  also be affected by any agreements/negotiations you have made with the other side, and any external factors such witnesses availability or third party involvement. As a guide the more straightforward cases tend to have a hearing dates listed in Court within 8-12 months of a claim being issued.

Fees

Due to the wide variety of matters, and the individual circumstances which surround cases in which we are asked to advise and represent clients upon, it is not practical to give exact total costs for all services that 3PB provide.

Once we properly understand your circumstances and requirements, we will always give you an individual cost estimate at the start of your instruction with no obligation to instruct, and then for each stage thereafter. In general we offer a variety of ways of charging but most commonly these are using a fixed fee - to which you will agree at the outset - or by hourly rates; again with your agreement and as set out in our quote.

Some indicative cost details are provided below - however please do contact us directly for an accurate quote.

 

Financial disputes arising out of divorce

Financial remedy divorce matters can be relatively straightforward or incredibly complex. Matters could involve minimal assets in one jurisdiction with no children, to multiple assets across several jurisdictions and involving children. The work that is undertaken is broad and is entirely dependent upon the individual circumstances of the divorce. For that reason, it is not practicable for us to provide a total cost of the service covering all eventualities.

Our charges can be based either upon a fixed fee, for certain components, an hourly rate, or a combination of the two depending upon your individual circumstances including your and the other parties’ approach to the matter. It is not possible to provide a fixed price for each component part of a case without knowing the intricacies of each stage of the proceedings. As a guide our Barristers charge an hourly rate ranging between £150 per hour and £750 per hour (plus VAT where applicable) and set fees can be agreed based on the preparation and court time for each specific circumstance.

If your case requires Court hearings, you may be required to pay the Court Issue fee. Details of these can be found here. Or if you require an expert this may incur additional costs.

Employment

There are many facets to employment matters, from unfair dismissal to discrimination. The work that is undertaken on cases is broad and entirely dependent upon the individual circumstances being alleged. For that reason, it is not practicable for us to provide a total cost of our services covering all eventualities.

Licencing

There are many different licences which businesses may require to operate in their premises, and each business will be unique in terms of its requirements within the licence and rarely be the same set of circumstances. Our fees and pricing will reflect the circumstances surrounding the licence application, for example the complexity of the application, licencing authority approach, any objections.

Probate

All matters have different scenarios surrounding them, and no estate is exactly the same. Our fees and pricing will reflect the complexity of the deceased’s estate and affairs. An estate comprising of minimal and simple assets, with a small number of beneficiaries, will cost less to advise upon than those estates comprising of multiple complex or business assets, cross jurisdiction, multiple beneficiaries and involving trusts.
