Our fees are based on time spent. Currently, our chargeable rate for principal is HK$450 per hour and associate solicitors is $250 (which is subject to revision from time to time).
We are happy to provide a fee estimate after being advised of full details of instructions. Our initial discussion and consultation is provided free of charge. However, for the first discussion to be fruitful and productive, we generally require to be provided beforehand essential documents relating to the instructions.
We also appreciate that a lot of clients will need certainty as to the likely fees they will be exposed to. Accordingly, we are open to negotiation for a fixed fee or fee cap for a particular instruction.
We will usually issue invoices monthly. Before we start working, we will require a deposit of half of the estimated fee or fixed fee.
