At Churchills, we understand first and foremost the importance of your  relationship with your client.  We aim to provide expert representation with sensible and predictable fees.

Our fees for national filings into Australia and New Zealand are fixed.  We do not levy surcharges based on multiple priority claims,  the number of claims, the number of pages, filing of a prepared translation and the like.
