Our approach

First, do business. Then worry about the legals. Plain English Law gives practical, commercially smart legal advice. Then we write the documents in everyday language.

Fixed-fee and Hourly

Where possible, we prefer to quote fixed fees. That way, the price reflects the value you get instead of the time we put in. If that's not possible, we provide a cost estimate and an hourly rate.

Virtual Counsel

Perfect for larger projects, helping an existing in-house legal team, or smaller businesses that don't need full-time counsel. Our month-to-month Virtual Counsel plans are excellent value. Strike your own balance of price and flexibility:

  • Lower hourly rates, with day rates available.
  • No increases to your headcount.
  • No long-term commitment required.

International

We provide legal support to small and medium-sized businesses in Scotland, across the rest of the UK, and in Canada.

Scotland

United Kingdom

Costs in Dundee are much lower than in London and the South East. Or in Manchester, Leeds, or Edinburgh, for that matter.

With qualifications in Scotland, England & Wales, Plain English Law offers great value to clients across most of the UK.

Canada
