Omond & Co provides pragmatic, commercial advice that takes account of all of its client’s circumstances. It does not simply provide a statement of the relevant law, leaving the client to try to apply it to reality.
The firm’s non-CBD location and low number of staff means that it is very cost-competitive, with a charge-out rate for lawyers with 20+ years’ quality commercial experience equal to charge-out rates for 1st or 2nd year lawyers at the big CBD firms.
Omond & Co does not try to be a ‘full service’ firm – it only undertakes work when it can do so economically, efficiently, and accurately. If a task is outside the areas of the firm’s expertise, we will tell the client. We can then offer to source the advice from another specialist law firm (or barrister), direct the client to an appropriate service provider, or leave it to the client to source its own advice.
We also aim to become as familiar as possible with clients’ business (at our cost, not the clients’ !), so that we can provide quick telephone advice on those small ‘day-to-day’ legal matters that crop up all too frequently when running a business.
Omond & Co can also offer clients the benefit of many years’ experience managing the legal spend of large companies.

Omond & Co believes that legal billing should more closely match the business practices of the firm’s clients. We do not charge for typing, secretarial overtime, incidental photocopying, postage and for the cost of telephone calls (i.e. the general costs of doing business).
We undertake as much work s possible on a fixed quote basis, as opposed to the traditional time-costing favoured by lawyers and other professionals, and also offer a longer term fixed price option to established clients.
We are also open to other options proposed by clients.
