I had a solicitor represent me in 2014 in an employment

Customer Question

I had a solicitor represent me in 2014 in an employment dispute matter. I had paid £1400 on account when I instructed her on 25 July 2014 and the matter concluded on 30 sept 2014. I expected my bill to be around £3000. I never received a final account until I received a letter dated 27th June 2016 some 21 months later for £7262.90 including vat!
Can this solicitor legally send a bill so late and at twice the charges I was expecting?
