Commercial terms

Bennett is an incorporated legal practice whose liability is limited by a scheme approved under Professional Standards Legislation.

We are committed to delivering value for our clients and guarantee transparency in our commercial terms and billing processes, assessing all costs against the outcomes we deliver.

Unless otherwise agreed we act on behalf of our clients pursuant to Bennett’s standard Costs Agreement, which provides:

  • for work to be performed at commercial rates;
  • for work to be billed at regular (monthly) intervals; and
  • a full statement of our clients’ rights;

in accordance with the Legal Profession Uniform Law.

We keep our clients fully informed about our commercial rates, our estimate of the likely costs of providing legal services for any given subject matter (where capable of estimation) and the costs at risk in litigation.
