We do not ordinarly charge on an hourly basis. Instead we will provide you with a detailed breakdown of the work we will be undertaking, together with an estimate of how much it will cost.
Our billing policy takes into account factors to appropriately determine the value of the legal work. The NZLS Rules of Professional Conduct requires practitioners to take into account no fewer than eight criteria when determining a fee, only one of which is the time. We balance these factors to ensure that true value and satisfaction are delivered to our clients.
We do understand however that some clients prefer an hourly rate approach. We are happy to use this approach if it works best for the client.
