The duration of your case, from receiving initial instructions to reaching a final resolution, varies depending on the stage at which your case is resolved. If a settlement is reached through pre-claim negotiation, it is expected to take approximately 3-6 weeks. However, if your claim proceeds to a final hearing, the timeframe is likely to be around 9-24 months.

Barrister’s fees are generally estimated between £1,000 to £2,500 per day (+ VAT), depending on the level of experience of council, for providing representation at hearing. For complex cases it may be advisable to instruct a more senior barrister and their fees will be higher.

Expert fee is dependent upon type of report and can be in the range of 800-2000 VAT exclusive per report.
