Our Professional Fees

Mayflower Solicitors provides a tailored and bespoke service to all its clients, and we will always be transparent and open about the fees to be charged before we commence working on your behalf, keeping you updated as we progress your matter to a conclusion. Under our Regulator, the SRA, we are obliged to publish information about some of the services we provide to you, so you have a comparison with other law firms to handle your matter. We are happy to provide you with the following price details on our services:

Conditional Fee agreement

Damage Based Agreement

Fixed Fee Agreement

Before you instruct us, we will be completely clear about how much it is likely to cost and, once we start, we will keep you regularly updated.

Our Pro Bono service

We offer a free 30 minute telephone consultation for eligible individuals facing Unfair Dismissal, Unpaid Wages, Work Place Discrimination, Redundancy and Employment Tribunal Claims to go through the issues and outline the legal aspects and options of the situation.

After this initial consultation, we may be able to offer free initial legal advice or alternative fee arrangements for assisting and/or representing clients in matters that would previously have been funded by Legal Aid.

We can also continue to assist and advise you on a private fee paying basis and may also consider reduced rates where a client is considered eligible, or ‘No Win, No Fee’ conditional fee arrangements (‘CFA’).
