Frequency Questions and Answers


We charge our legal fee varies according to the circumstances and complexity of the case. In most civil matters, we offer two different ways of charging fees for civil matters i.e. fixed fees and contigency fee (percentage fees based on the contentious amount involved). For criminal matters, there is only single way of charging that is fixed fee.

In some non-contentious matters such as Sale and Purchase Agreement, Tenancy Agreement and etc., the legal fee is fixed and prescribed by the Advocates Remuneration Rules 1988. For that reason, we are strictly prohibited to charge in excess or below the prescribed fee.

Therefore, for quotation of our legal fees kindly contact us directly.

That’s a common misconception. Lawyer’s fee is relatively modest and correspond with the amount of work, time, skill and effort spent working on each case. Most often, the client tends to overlook the fact that much of lawyer’s work is unseen. The many hours spent in researching the law or drafting the agreement or in evaluating the evidence are usually done in the quiet of library and outside the presence of our client. Not to forget lawyer consumes much of their time going through voluminous law reports and journal full with legal jargons that often time only lawyers could understand. In return of that efforts, lawyer takes away the trouble from client and give them instead a peace of mind and assurance that your case is well-taken care off.

Pursuant to Rule 7 of the Advocates Remuneration Rules 1988, no advocates shall give any discount on or receive in consideration any consideration other than the remuneration set out in the Advocates Remuneration Rules 1988. Exceptions only given to the following persons/bodies:

  1. Charity/Religious bodies
  2. Employees of the law firm
  3. Immediate family members of the advocate
  4. A fellow member of advocate

In all criminal cases, we will require full payment of legal fee or at least 50% deposit of total legal fee before we can work on your case.

In respect of civil cases, we usually enclose our Schedule of Payments in our Letter of Engagement. Payment of legal fee will be in accordance with the work progress as per stated in the Schedule of Payments.
