Fixed Fee Early Settlement

I offer a simple, cost-effective, and commercially focussed fixed-fee early settlement service that involves:

  1. an initial free Zoom conference to discuss the facts of your case and the evidence;
  2. a free Zoom conference to discuss the potential grounds of claim, and chances of success (‘legal merits’); and
  3. a fixed fee 1-2 day settlement negotiation (currently by Zoom) involving the following preparation:

3.1       drafting a 3 page commercial analysis of your claim/defence/counter-claim;

3.2       drafting a 15 page legal risk analysis of the claim/defence/counter-claim (i.e. law; remedies; procedure; burden of proof; evidence; and costs);

3.3       the joint development of a methodology and proposals (i.e. a strategic ‘settlement roadmap’) for settling the claim/defence/counter-claim;

3.4       drafting correspondence and a position paper for the negotiation (or mediation); and

3.5       drafting a settlement agreement; and

  1. an alternative fixed-fee service to represent you in a mediation – which involves the same case preparation.

To enquire about my availability, please send an email to or call my Clerk Mr Ian Hogg on 0207 936 3030.

Following an initial telephone call documents in the case can be emailed to me through the cloud.
