Our Guarantee


The guarantee

We offer our clients a money-back guarantee. If you do not think we have achieved the standard of service we guarantee below, you do not need to pay our bill. Instead, you are welcome only to pay us what you think our work was worth.

The conditions

The only conditions we put on this are:

  • You must accept that we cannot guarantee a particular outcome for you. We can only guarantee what is within our control, as set out below.
  • You must tell us at the time where and how you feel we have fallen short of the standards we set for ourselves.
  • The guarantee only affects our fees, not any out-of-pocket expenses we incur on your behalf.

The standards we set for ourselves are:

  1. We will be careful and thorough in our work
  2. We will meet agreed deadlines and offer a fast turnaround when requested
