Lawyers are not allowed to provide discount for legal fees, is it true? It is true. As according to The Malaysian Bar, the standard legal fees were fixed and no discount is allowed as per Solicitors’ Remuneration (Enforcement) Rules 2004.
Legal fees for property transactions such as sale & purchase, loan, banking facility and other non-contentious business governed by the solicitors’ Remuneration Order are fixed by law and LAWYERS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO PROVIDE DISCOUNT

Anyway, if you insist to ask for discount on the legal fees, go ahead, no harm to try. Who knows they got their ‘ways’ to offer you the discount?
