our services and fees

At Icon Law, we work alongside some of the world’s leading Private Equity houses, including The Carlyle Group and Onex, and bold, progressive law firms such as Avonhurst. We assess fees on every matter we work with you on, identifying how the effort we will expend together creates and delivers value. For us, it’s about flexibility and creating true alignment with your needs. To this end, our fees can take the form of time-based billing, fixed project fees, retainers and discounted fixed fees, success fees and annual fees paid quarterly where appropriate. In fact, we’re convinced that that’s the way all advisory firms should operate.

We recognise that you want to see real value-for-money on day-to-day tasks and shared rewards on the mission-critical maters. That’s where we can really make a difference. Ours is a business that is designed without the legacy of the usual fixed billable hour and we adapt to your needs, motivated by the long-term development of our relationship with you and your team.

During our initial discussions with you, we will get under the skin of your commercial needs and objectives, then co-create a project scope, plan of action and clearly define costs, all underpinned by a ‘no suprises’ ideology. You can also count on us getting up to speed fast with the issues at hand if we’re brought into a pre-existing matter. That’s where our agility really helps. Ultimately, we aim to build long-term, collaborative partnerships with our clients, and our services and fees reflect that ambition.
