IN the competitive legal industry, one North Yorkshire solicitors’ practice is working hard to ensure a fair and transparent deal for their clients.

Hunton & Garget has been established in Richmond’s historic marketplace since 1820, and is one of the oldest firms in Yorkshire, offering residents, and surrounding areas, services in a wide range of legal matters, including conveyancing, commercial property, wills and probate, and agricultural and commercial transactions.

Managing Partner, Lisa Potts, leads a team that believes that the future for legal fees is in fixed pricing wherever possible, making it clearer and easier for clients to see what they will be expected to pay.

While conveyancing services traditionally have fixed fees, generally speaking, costs in other areas have been a bit less clear, and usually billed by the hour.

Lisa says: “At Hunton and Garget, are keen to move to fixed pricing in the majority of areas, which is unusual for traditional solicitors. We appreciate that our customers want to know what they can expect to pay for our services at the outset of transactions. We do not want our clients ever fearing an unknown large final bill.

“There is a perception that solicitors fees will always be high, and that you won’t know the final cost until you are presented with your bill. That is what we want to change.

“The fees we charge are fair for the work done, and we will ensure that client is kept informed in a clear and transparent manner, about what they can expect to pay for our services.”

Some fees are already detailed on the home page of their website, while other fees will be within a fixed range depending on the individual case.

Upon instruction to the solicitors to act for them, clients will always receive a letter setting out the likely fees they will incur.

After nearly two hundred years in Richmond, Hunton and Garget recently opened a second office in Catterick, having recognised the need to have a presence in the expanding town.

The success of the practice is clear – as they intend their pricing policy to be, as they go forward.
