“Cost-Effectively Resolve Your Commercial Dispute With Fixed Legal Fees You Can Negotiate, Control And Afford”

Insider Secrets 99% of ALL Lawyers Won’t Tell You About Legal Fees

Dear Reader,

Too often I hear the complaint that lawyers are the real winners in a legal dispute, because of the legal fees they earn.

I believe it shouldn’t be that way, and hourly rates often exceeding $500 per hour (plus GST) are a big part of the problem.

The problem is there’s no incentive for the work to be done more quickly.

Even worse, an inefficient lawyer will charge more than an efficient lawyer because it will take longer to do the same work.

Yet at least 99% of ALL lawyers ONLY charge hourly rates!

Why? It’s lucrative and most clients don’t know there is an alternative.

If you’re concerned about your legal fees spiralling out of control, fixed fees may be what you’re looking for:

  • You can negotiate, control and afford fixed legal fees
  • You know with certainty what each stage of work will cost

Fixed legal fees enable you to protect your money (or property) involved in the dispute, and your savings:

Greg charged fees that were commercial in relation to the amount in dispute, and ensured that I could fight an aggressive opponent seeking to grind me down financially.” Graham Darcy, Applecross, Perth

As a veteran commercial litigation lawyer with 19 years’ legal experience I know how to play the game and when to end it, which increases your prospects of a successful outcome:

Greg is a highly efficient and strategic litigator who has a record of getting great results, and does so with excellent interpersonal skills.” Mark van Brakel, Partner, Allen & Overy (Top 10 Global Law Firm)

(You’ll also spend less time worrying about the dispute, so you can get on with your life and business.)

I pay close attention to detail to find evidence to support persuasive legal arguments for your case:

I would highly recommend Greg to any client who is after a detail-oriented, hard working barrister who performs work in a thorough and timely manner.” Richard Mitry, Partner, Mitry Lawyers, Sydney

I’m used to making the right judgment calls, which can be the difference between financial disaster, a result you can live with, and a result beyond your expectations:

My claim was settled out of Court for an amount that I never considered attainable.” Graham Darcy, Applecross, Perth

I operate with much lower overheads than a traditional bricks and mortar law firm:

  • You won’t pay for an expensive office as I work from home (my city address is a shared co-working space)
  • I am a self-employed sole practitioner, and do my own administration
  • I don’t employ any lawyers, and only engage consultant lawyers to work for me when necessary (such as larger matters which require additional resourcing)

Please don’t pay more for your legal fees than necessary.

If you engage me you will be able to confidently resolve your dispute without the unexpected ‘price shocks’ often caused by bills based on hourly legal rates.

Sure, lawyers charging hourly rates have to provide estimates of their fees. But estimates are invariably accompanied by numerous caveats and a statement that the lawyer is not bound by the estimate.

This is important: if the other party is being charged hourly rates they may well be spending more on legal fees than you. (So you may have a secret unfair advantage in the cost of legal representation, meaning you can hang in there for longer, for a better deal.)

Please don’t become a victim of hourly rates.

I’ve seen too many cases where a demoralised party has folded because legal fees have consumed too much of their savings.

With fixed fees the price you are invoiced is the price you agree to upfront. Unlike hourly legal rates you won’t be on the back foot trying to negotiate your bill after the work is done.

At the end of the day… effective dispute resolution is all about the art of persuasion, and knowing when to call it a day. This requires long experience inside and outside the Courtroom, and at the negotiating table. As Kenny Rogers said:

You’ve got to know when to hold ’em, know when to fold ’em, know when to walk away, and know when to run“.

I look forward to assisting you to achieve the best possible outcome.

Yours sincerely,

Greg Carter
