Lawyers are obliged to inform you of the basis of your fees, the payment method, and any situation that might result in changes to the agreed charges. A good lawyer would also remind you of the solicitor and client costs and party and party costs that are involved in your matter. As your opponent may not be ordered to pay the full amount of your fees, it’s important to know the full cost that you will be bearing for the dispute.
