Terms and Conditions


While we use our hourly charge out rates as a guide, our fees for client representation will be based on reasonable fee factors that will be agreed at each stage of the process. Disbursements will be charged in an additional administration fee.

Travel will be charged at the current rate prescribed by the IRD per kilometre, in addition to our usual hourly rates.

The administration fee will be an amount that we consider proportionate to the extent of administration services provided in respect of that invoice to cover administration costs such as telephone calls, general photocopying, and file administration.

Responsibility for service

Director Allan Halse will have overall responsibility for the services provided to you. However, our other staff will work in support and may be in contact with you from time to time in order to progress your matter.
