If you are a sole trader, partnership, limited company or LLP there will, at times, arise matters where you need specialist legal advice.

Courtyard Solicitors fixed fee business advice meeting provides you with a face to face meeting with a solicitor specialising in the relevant area of law for up to 90 minutes. It is for you to decide how this time should be spent. It could be discussing a specific problem or advising you on a letter or document or helping you to prepare a letter or document.

If you wish we can consider documents prior to your attending at Courtyard Solicitors' office (time spent on this will be included in the 90 minutes). We believe that this service gives you the opportunity to obtain expert legal advice at a fixed fee and without the obligation to take matters further if you do not wish to do so.

Please note that if your issue is of a contentious or difficult nature, and it is unlikely that we will be able to provide you with a satisfactory service within 90 minutes, we will advise you of our fees once we know more about your matter.
