Fees and Packages

At Aitchison Reid we understand that legal costs are always a concern whether you are a head contractor, developer, homeowner or subcontractor. That’s why we give estimates before we perform new work for new clients and we have created packages to give you certainty and clarity about price.

Engagement Process and Fees

Before you engage our services, we will always provide you with a letter of engagement, which will state:

  • A description of the work you have asked us to do; and
  • An estimate for that work.

If you have any questions about our pricing or our estimates we are more than happy to discuss them further with you.

We don’t believe that quality expert advice in building and construction law should cost you an arm and a leg, that’s why our hourly rates are some of the most competitive in the market:

Principal Solicitor $425 per hour (excluding GST)
Solicitor $300 per hour (excluding GST)


We have developed the following packages for contracts and for domestic building reviews.

Personalised eContracts

We have developed a number of basic contract packages for our clients. The packages contain additional documents as part of the package and we also provide a number of “add on” services, including personalised clauses, commercial suspension of works pack, tender checklist etc.

In consultation with our clients, we have also developed a contract support package, which gives you ongoing solicitor support, educational webinars, updates to your contracts (to take account of the latest legislation and common law changes) and discounted legal fees.

Contract Reviews

For contract reviews we have developed a range of packages for both consumers and investors that range in price to suit all budgets.

Our services are popular and in demand from people and businesses choosing to seek timely advice from us.

We like to make it easy for people to reach out for help. We give prospective, new and existing clients 30 free monthly minutes to call us and discuss their building or construction law matters.

To discuss these or any of our other services, call us on 07 3128 0120 or contact us here.
