We receive instructions from numerous sources including solicitors, and persons with legal authority to deal with a matter. We offer 2 fee structures:-
If we are instructed on a private fee paying basis, we will charge a fixed fee agreed in advance.
Our minimum fee for private work is £500, which may vary depending on the complexity of the matter, and if there is an international element to the transaction. We guarantee that we will never ask you to pay more than the agreed fee.
Contingency Fee basis
We work on matters where there is no one to formally appoint us to trace beneficiaries, or where funds are not available to pay our fee. In these situations we work on a contingency basis where we receive a percentage of the beneficiaries entitlement.
Effectively, this is on a “no win no fee basis”.
We do not charge a fee for any work we carry out, but will usually take a commission of whatever amount we successfully recover on your behalf.
If we do not recover anything, you will not pay us anything guaranteed. Normally we charge a commission rate of 25%, but this can vary depending on the merits and complexity of the matter. Please refer to the commission agreement we send you to check what you will be paying.
