Following our latest review of our rates and charges, CTRL have decided not to increase our rates for the second year running.
Clients of CTRL will already be aware that we offer favourable rates and flexible payment terms. We have made this decision to hold our rates at current levels against a background of rising legal costs, increasing complexity of legal disputes and ever changing marine regulations. For Members of the Shipowners’ Club, our rates are further discounted in line with the Club’s mutual ethos. CTRL was created to save legal costs for Members of the Club, rather than generate a profit for partners or shareholders, and our rates have been set with this aim in mind.
For Members of the Club, our rates currently stand at £225 per hour for shipping matters and £165 per hour for personal injury matters (£275 and £220 for non members respectively). Under the CTRL benefit clause, which forms part of Club cover, Members are also entitled to two hours’ free legal advice each year on qualifying English law matters. Fees for technical services are estimated on a case by case basis due to the bespoke nature of these services.
If you have a legal or technical matter which you feel would benefit from our assistance, please contact us for a cost estimate. The first telephone call is free.
