Award-winning Court of Protection Costs Specialists
In both cases, the costs for our preparation of the bill are included within the bill itself. Therefore, our costs are placed under the same scrutiny as your own. We are able to limit our costs to that as assessed by the costs officer so you have the assurance that your client (the protected party in most cases) will only pay that which is deemed reasonable by the Senior Courts Costs Office (SCCO).
To enable us to prepare your bills and ensure all appropriate items are claimed, we would require the following:-
Upon receipt of your files, they will be allocated to a dedicated Court of Protection specialist who will prepare the draft bill for you. Along with the request for assessment (N258B), your costs expert will also provide their note, which will provide you with information regarding any issues to be addressed and attendance notes to be provided prior to lodging the bill for assessment.
Your costs specialist will be happy to work with you to ensure you are completely satisfied with the bill prior to submitting to the SCCO, and answer any queries you may have.
