2009 Guideline Hourly Court Rates

Posted on Wednesday, December 31st, 2008

The Advisory Committee on Civil Costs has now released recommended guideline Court rates for 2009 which can be found below.

If you intend to make use of these higher rates we would advise that you write to clients as soon as possible to inform them of the changes and therefore avoid being unable to claim them during costs negotiation.

This will be of particular relevance to Solicitors in the old National 3 areas as these rates have been raised significantly and are now at the same level as National 2 areas.

If you would like to discuss these changes in more detail or just want to ensure that you are able to claim these increased rates please do not hesitate to contact us.
