At Atkinson Saul Fairholm, our philosophy is to remain close to our clients and to provide a personal, cost effective service. We do not have separate specialist departments providing advice which clients rarely need. We don’t do the glossy brochures, the ‘free’ seminars or the corporate entertaining for potential new clients. They all cost money which would be reflected in higher fees.
We concentrate our resources directly on our clients. By staying focused and small, we are able to provide good value services, with access to specialist expert advice on a needs only basis.
We will always discuss with you the scope of the work to be undertaken and agree fee costs prior to commencement of the work.
You will note that many of the services that we provide are support services. This is an area which has grown considerably over recent years. Often those support facilities will simply consist of a telephone call from our client to obtain our advice on a business decision they are about to make. We are able to draw on our expertise and experience from acting for over 300 clients, covering a whole variety of different businesses, to help you make the right decision for your business.
