Before we begin any new project, Bond Clarke will undertake a detailed analysis of your specific requirements, alongside an equally thorough review of the nature of your business and your unique risks, constraints and goals. This allows all our advice to be given explicitly in the context of your business and ensures that both parties focus solely and efficiently upon those items which really matter.
Part of this process specifically addresses the most efficient costing model according to the nature and duration of the work, your financial periods, bandwidth, personal preferences etc.
Bond Clarke makes no charge for the pre-engagement service because it is a valuable activity for lawyer and client alike. With a clearly documented definition of scope and a jointly-agreed billing model, expectations, roles and responsibilities are thoroughly understood by all concerned. There is no opportunity for nasty surprises or for any hidden costs. Consequently, Bond Clarke engagements are characterised by their efficiency, low risk and low stress.
