Award-winning Court of Protection Costs Specialists
Many years ago, the majority of Costs Officers, once they had assessed the bill, would re-calculate the same. However, given the pressures placed on the Costs Officers there are many assessed bills of costs being returned for recalculation. Of course, with the advent of the electronic bill (E-bill) these automatically re-calculate, but we will still be able to assist with analysing and advising you on the outcome of the assessment.
Once the assessed bill of costs is received, we will be happy to re-calculate the sums allowed and provide advice with regard to areas of reductions that have been made. We will advise you on any contentious points and the merits of pursuing an appeal to the assessing officer or beyond.
This carries with it many advantages:-
If you are happy with the outcome of the assessment, the next step is to request the Final Costs Certificate and raise your final invoice for the year!
