At Penderlaw we are proud of our reputation as a straight-talking, friendly and efficient firm of solicitors. This approach naturally extends to our transparent pricing policy. Below you will find guidance on our fees, split by specialism.
Whilst costs for some matters fall into our fixed price quote pricing structure, others may require a more tailored approach, and therefore are estimated or quoted individually. Costs detailed within the quotes we provide are broken down and explained in detail.
Please note: The pricing list below is not an exhaustive list of the services we offer. Please call us on 01872 241408 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you require further clarification. Prices are quoted exclusive of VAT and disbursements.
