Estates

Fees for Core Legal Services

Our standard fee for Core Legal Services is $3,000 plus 1% for the first $1,000,000 and 0.5% for any amounts in excess of $1,000,000.  These fees are based on the gross value of the Estate and do not include disbursements and GST.

At the conclusion of our services we review your matter to decide if the quoted fee is appropriate in relation to the services provided to complete the Estate. If we feel that the quoted fee is too high, we will reduce it to a fair and reasonable amount, based on the factors outlined in the Code of Professional Conduct and the Surrogate Rules.
