affordable support

It doesn’t take deep pockets to access our deep knowledge.  A day of (candid founder) Al’s expertise would have cost you upwards of £3,000 back when he was a lawyer – but he always found it hard to charge for work at those rates with a straight face and a clear conscience.

On founding candid, Al was determined that there was a better way – that no organisation should be out-gunned just because it could be out-spent.


flexible and certain

Every organisation is different – but one thing almost all have in common is the need for costs certainty.  The costs of support will, by definition, depend very much on what you need – but the principles will always be the same:

  • Wherever we can agree a sufficiently clear scope of work between us, you will be offered a fixed fee.

  • Where we can’t, the uncertain bit of the scope of work will be charged at a clear day or half-day rate.

  • Volume discounts will be applied where relevant.

  • If your budget won’t cover what you’ve asked for, we will work with you to refine the scope of work to suit your budget.

Watch this space for details of some exciting, affordable fixed-price packages aimed at covering most organisations' core commercial and legal needs (launching later in 2019).

Even better, candid offers new clients a way of completely de-risking the decision to work with us, where you decide what you think our work is worth – read more here.

And if you’re a charity or social enterprise, you get an additional discount – it seems only right.
