Straightforward pricing structure with no hidden costs

We know that many people worry about how much legal help will cost so we’ve made it simple. With Astute HR you’ve got three options:

  • A one-off fixed fee, agreed and paid up front.
  • An hourly rate where we’ll keep you informed of what’s due at every stage so you aren’t stretched beyond your means.
  • Retainer – a monthly fixed fee for on demand services, available to employers only.

Our standard hourly rate is £350 plus VAT (£420), but we don’t want to charge you that. We charge you by the problem solved rather than by the hour, so that you pay for value rather than for time.

Fixed price quotes are based on your desired outcomes which can be anything from an assessment of your matter to unlimited advice and assistance up to and including the conclusion of an employment tribunal case, and everything HR/employment law related inbetween.

We operate a no surprises policy when it comes to our pricing so contact us today for us to offer you a quote to resolve whatever your HR/employment law problem is.
