What we do

The provision of competition and regulatory advice has always required more than its fair share of “touch and feel”. It is not a skill sector of the legal services market that needs, for the most part, the deployment of resources alone; experience and a strong sense for how it “works” is far more important. In short, one good lawyer can provide greater value than half-a-dozen mediocre ones.

Competition and regulatory advice is not the exclusive domain of “big law” and its city-centre fee rates. The infrastructure that always comes attached to larger law firms means that they can no longer offer clients a value proposition that is comparable to that offered by boutique practices. Quality advice for the right price is available from the micro-market and from TupperS Law.

TupperS Law generally charges on a time-recorded hourly rate basis. Our headline hourly rate is £350 (not including VAT). Flat- and capped-fees can be negotiated for certain types of project.
