We understand our clients are already in a difficult situation with a stressful legal dispute. The fear of spiraling legal costs doesn’t help anyone. Many people may feel they are priced out and have to go without crucial legal advice. However, in most cases we can offer fixed fee litigation and fixed price legal services in phases.

The team at Anwar Legal specialise in dispute resolution and are ready to help you and your business. We have extensive experience in dealing with business disputes, consumer disputes, property disputes and debt recovery.

Unlike other law firms, we regularly speak to our clients and quote fixed fees in phases from the start of the case to the final hearing. The reason being we have dealt with similar types of cases in the past and understand the complexity of the legal issues in the case.

Fixed Price Legal Services Assessment

Before deciding on any legal costs with our clients, we will speak to you first and discuss the legal dispute and the necessary work required to resovle your dispute. During the call, we will discuss with you whether the fixed fee option is both appropriate and likely to save you money.

  • Breach of Commercial Contracts
  • Shareholders and Directors Dispute
  • Unpaid Invoices
  • Purchase of Faulty Goods I.e. car, machines and more
  • Professional Negligence against solicitors, builders, architect, accountants etc
  • Insurance Disputes (not personal injury claims) i.e. rejected theft of prestige vehicles

  • Commercial Property Landlord and Tenant Dispute
  • Property Ownership Disputes I.e. between unmarried couples, siblings and investment partners
