All fees and disbursements will be due (without any right of set off) for settlement in sterling, or other agreed currency equivalent, upon presentation of our invoice. Interest at the rate of 1% per month will be added to all fees and disbursements which remain outstanding for more than 30 days from the invoice date.
If we hold monies in a clients' account (whether as a result of a request for monies to be held on account of future fees and disbursements or not) then we may settle any invoices for fees and disbursements out of any such monies held in the clients' account as soon as the invoice has been rendered and drawn to your attention.
Where any fees and disbursements remain outstanding for more than 60 days beyond their invoice date we reserve the right to cease providing any Legal Services until all outstanding fees and interest thereon have been settled in full and an amount has been received on account of future fees and disbursements. On ceasing to provide any such Legal Services as a result of fees and disbursements being overdue we will not answer any correspondence or attend to any filings or other matters which may need to be attended to on your behalf in relation to the Legal Services and we shall not incur any liability as a result of our ceasing to provide Legal Services in these circumstances. We reserve the right to charge for time spent in collecting overdue fees, disbursements and third party charges. Where we outsource debt recovery to an external agency in the event of late or non-payment you will also be responsible for reimbursing us in respect of any fees or costs incurred in connection therewith.
