Fixed Fees in Social Care Cases

Sometimes, public bodies, commercial operators and private individuals simply want a speedy, short, no frills opinion on the meaning/effect of social care legislation or guidance and its application and on relatively straight-forward issues such as ordinary residence and charging. To meet that need in a cost-effective manner Stephen Knafler QC provides fixed fee opinions in social care cases as follows:

  • 1 or 2 questions with no more than 10 pages of papers: £350 plus VAT
  • 1 or 2 questions with no more than 50 pages of papers: £500 plus VAT
  • 3 to 5 questions with no more than 10 pages of papers: £500 plus VAT
  • 3 to 5 questions with no more than 100 pages of papers: £750 plus VAT

Exceptionally, the difficulty of the issue(s) raised may result in a decision that the case cannot be dealt with on this fixed fee basis and instead a different fixed quote will be given.
