Capped Fees

Fixed and Capped Legal Fees

Watson Thomas Solicitors provide transparency with legal costs. We want to ensure that you know exactly how much our family law services will cost and will carry out your requirements on the basis of either an agreed fixed fee or a capped fee. You will never have to pay any more than the fixed fee.

Where the work needed to resolve your case is uncertain, for example if you instruct Watson Thomas Solicitors to resolve a financial dispute, then we may or may not need to go through the Court procedure to secure a settlement, then we provide a capped fee based on the matter proceeding to Court.

‘No Hidden Cost’ Promise from Watson Thomas Solicitors

You will never need to pay any more than the agreed capped fee. We will account to you each month for the work we have carried out and if, at the end of the process we hold surplus funds, these will be returned to you.
We ask for the capped fee to either be paid in full in advance or in easy to manage instalments. If payment is made in advance and in full, you will benefit from a 10% reduction on the total fee.

Watson Thomas Solicitors are committed to offering a compassionate legal advice service that provides a clear way forward for clients during a difficult time, helping to make often stressful situations, less daunting to deal with.

Clear and Pragmatic Legal Advice

When you instruct Watson Thomas Solicitors you can expect clarity from the outset. We offer an initial free consultation which, unlike many other solicitors, is not limited to 30 minutes. During that consultation, we will listen to your situation and gain an understanding of what it is you need from us. We will give you advise you at that meeting as to your legal position, outlining the options open to you and the next steps you need to take. We will also provide you with a fixed or capped fee payment plan for carrying out that work. As an independent firm, Watson Thomas are able to keep overheads low and that saving is passed to our clients making us very competitive on price.
