It is a civil case and it is multi-track.
One of the defendants is attempting to say he was only an employee.
There were 4 defendants, one was successful in this defence - she got awarded £120.00 costs - I can live with that.
However one of the others has put in an application to dismiss (at the pre trial review, held on Wednesday!), the main hearing - 5 days - commences on this Monday. He is saying his costs (he employed a solicitor to draw up the paperwork) is about £3,500.
Obviously that is a serious amount of money so can I if he is successful ask for his costs to be reviewed?
Just for advise given, a couple of letters/emails and preparing the paperwork. Not for the solicitors attendance.
he has not prepared a statement of costs
Thank you so much.
Do you think that it is not proportionate. I felt that it was way over charged. I would have expected about £1,500 - £2,000 to be nearer the mark
Thanks as usual you have brilliant xxxx
