  • Please note the following terms of our refund policy:

    1. No Guarantee of Outcome: We provide expert assistance and advice throughout the SQE2 exemption application process. However, we cannot guarantee the outcome of the application, as the final decision rests with the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) and is subject to their criteria and assessment.

    2. Hourly Billing: Our services are billed on an hourly basis, ensuring that clients pay only for the time spent directly on their application.

    3. Service Completion at £850: Our service commitment is deemed fulfilled once the total billing reaches £850. This cap ensures clarity and fairness in our billing practices.

    4. No Refunds for Completed Work: As our service is based on the provision of professional time and advice, we do not offer refunds for completed work. Our team invests significant effort and expertise at each stage of your application, making fees for hours of service rendered non-refundable.

    5. Client Responsibility: It is the responsibility of the client to provide all necessary and accurate information and documentation in a timely manner for the application. Delays or inaccuracies in providing required materials may impact the success of the application and do not constitute a basis for a refund.

    We advise all prospective clients to discuss their specific circumstances with us before engaging our services. Our goal is to set clear expectations and ensure our services meet your requirements for the SQE2 exemption application process.
