Pricing and frameworks

We are committed to a clear pricing policy.

We don’t just bill by the hour but offer innovative pricing solutions to suit you and your business, including fixed fee or capped fee arrangements to give you certainty on your legal costs and as a leading public law firm, all public sector organisations have a route to instruct us through various frameworks including the NHS Shared Business Services and the Crown Commercial Service (CCS) Wider Public Sector.

Do get in touch to discuss pricing options with one of our solicitors.

We are on all key public sector legal panels.

Member organisations are able to instruct Sharpe Pritchard directly without needing to run a competitive tender. Member organisations also receive a number of value added services such as competitive rates, free training and legal updates.
