Small Claims Court Service
We offer fixed fee packages to cover all aspects of a small claim, whether you are suing or being sued.
- If you are at your wits end, and feel that you are about to start a small claim, then we will give you an initial assessment of your case under our fixed fee interview scheme
- We can then be on hand throughout the case on the same basis – we bill you £80 and you can drop in and with 30 minutes on the clock we shall let you know where you stand and you can decide whether to ask for a further bill. So you have complete control over your expenses at all times. We will advise you on the procedure and the law, and on what you should be doing to maximise your case in the eyes of the judge.
- We can prepare paperwork for you. We will quote on any job from preparing the original claim or defence, to assisting with an appeal notice. Generally we can do this for £125 - £175 a document.
- We will represent you at the hearing. Because of the way that the court block-books small claims hearings, we have to charge on the basis that we shall be engaged with your case for half day blocks. For half a day we charge £400, and for a full day £750
This is not a cut-price service. The care and preparation that we put into this work is the same as we do on our mainstream commercial litigation, the difference is in the amount of partner time we devote. In most small claims if the case goes to court the steps that get there are fairly standard and predictable. So we can concentrate on just doing the work in hand.
