OUR GUIDING POLICIES

1. FEES AND BILLING
AGO's model of charging fees is mainly guided by law i.e. the Advocates (Remuneration) Order. However, we remain flexible and cognizant of our diverse clients’ fnancial ability. Our basis of raising legal fees is informed by several factors such as the time spent and invested, the complexity, the urgency, the intricacy, the value and the logistical requirements of the matter. Further we bill disbursements based on the actual prevailing costs for stationery, postal, telephone charges and other incidentals. Where the execution of a matter involves travelling out of town, accommodation, transport and related expenses shall be borne solely by the instructing client. Value Added Tax is to be raised on legal fees and on disbursements (subject to V.A.T) as may be required by law from time to time.
2. COMMUNICATION & REGULAR STATUS-UPDATES
We maintain constant communication with clients via telephone calls and email correspondence. We also send status updates on a monthly basis to brief clients on progress made on ongoing matters and outline the way forward in the execution of outstanding tasks. We also send AGO’s regular newsletters and from time to time, letters of advice on new developments and change in law as well as legal issues relevant to their business.
3. CONFIDENTIALITY
We always endeavor to keep confdential all information relating to the clients and their transactions which come to our knowledge in the course our engagements and not to use any such information save for fulflling our duties.
