The calculation of fees payable by You described in this agreement may be superseded to the extent expressly so agreed by one of Our legal directors in a written document describing itself as a derogation letter and specifying an alternative fee arrangement.
Changes to fees: Subject to the terms of this clause 1.4 We shall give You at least one month’s notice if We propose to amend the mechanism for calculating the amount You are to be charged without Your prior agreement.
