The Options

Charges
Air Law Options provides legal advice at an hourly rate which is set at about half the hourly rate of a City firm, with fractions of hours being charged pro rata. We consider ourselves to be very cost-effective for our clients, keeping them constantly informed of the fees they have incurred, and making every attempt to keep these fees as low as possible while providing advice of the highest quality. Our charges are calculated according to the number of minutes actually spent on a client's business, with no minimum charging period, and with detailed breakdowns of time being made available to clients.

The Options
Our pricing structure has been designed to give clients the option to purchase a fixed number of hours of advice per month or to obtain advice on an ad hoc basis. Fixing a requirement for a given period means that a client effectively has its own in-house lawyer on a part-time basis for that period, and also enables the client to take advantage of a discounted rate. The discount offered depends on the number of hours pre-booked and the number of months for which the booking is made. Of course, once the set hours have been completed, we can still continue to work for the client but at the slightly higher ad hoc rate.

The basic charge is £195 per hour for ad hoc advice or for time spent over and above the contracted monthly allotment, and the discounted block hour rates are set out below.
