Your pricing structure is up to you and may vary on a case by case basis. You may charge an hourly rate or you may wish to charge a fixed fee for a whole report. There are pros and cons to both. However you decide to charge, your pricing should be clear in your Terms of Business with your instructing solicitor and you should both agree your fees before undertaking the work to avoid disputes later. For some kinds of reports you may be expected to provide a ‘costs budget’ and estimate your entire fees for the case as part of the overall management of the litigation by the solicitor.
