Appropriate when the remit of the research cannot be clearly gauged at the outset. Our fee is calculated on a time and expenses basis up to a pre-agreed working budget. In the event that the work is completed within this figure, you only pay for the time spent.
We take our assessments extremely seriously and we always aim to give you the best possible idea of how much a research project will cost. We will never seek to obtain an instruction of the basis of a misleading assessment.
While we aim to agree the most accurate initial fee limit possible, in some cases it may be necessary to agree an extension to the working budget. We will update you at intervals agreed at the outset, and at other times if significant events occur, so that you are always in a position to advise your client of the progress.
