Service Structure

1. Fixed fee services

Many clients prefer the certainty of fixed fees. We offer a variety of specific fixed fee services and will consider offering pre agreed prices for any of our services, so just ask us.

We offer a range of fixed fee services including our fixed fee consultation service. This is an appointment of up to one hour with one of our senior lawyers for $965 (inclusive of GST and office costs). A written summary of the advice covered during the meeting will be sent to you following your appointment.

This service allows clients the opportunity to receive advice on discrete matters or to receive preliminary advice so that they can find out where they stand before deciding whether to take their matter further.

We also offer fixed fees to draft various documents including employment contracts, handbooks and policies and procedures, and to conduct workplace investigations.

We can also offer fixed fees for project work such as a workplace audit to assess your business’ compliance with regulations and laws concerning workplace and employment issues, such as compliance with the National Employment Standards, relevant awards, and equal opportunity and anti-discrimination laws.

Contact us today on 9288 4000 for quotes.

2. Pay for time spent

Some clients prefer to pay for time spent on their matters through our hourly rates. We offer competitive hourly rates (split into 6 minute units, and charged per unit) compared to other law firms in our area of expertise and apply discounts when more than one lawyer is working on your matter.

We work in teams to ensure that your matter is dealt with as efficiently as possible. The senior lawyer with the higher hourly rate does not need to do all the work. We ensure that each piece of work is carried out by the person best suited to do the work considering their expertise and hourly rate.

If you would like more information about our hourly rates please contact us on 9288 4000.

3. Service Agreements

These types of arrangements are particularly appealing to small and medium sized businesses who may not have a dedicated human resources manager or companies with small human resources teams.

We can form part of your team by being at the end of the phone line whenever an issue arises. You can feel comfortable knowing that each of your human resources decisions are based on sound legal advice and that the cost is known and budgeted for.

If you are interested in a service agreement contact us today on 9288 4000 for a no obligation discussion.

4. Blocks of time

Some clients want us on site in their business for a day or two or sometimes longer, without distraction to deal with a discrete or various issues, and they simply want to pay us for that time. This can be more efficient than ad hoc work with hourly rates, because when you purchase blocks of our time for 8 or more hours, we will discount our fees by 15% and we won’t charge you for travel time or travel expense around the Perth Metropolitan area. Each further block of 8 hours above 16 attracts successively larger discounts.

If you are interested in purchasing blocks of our time, contact us today on 9288 4000 for a no obligation discussion.
