This has become very complicated. The regulations certainly haven't been designed with simplicity of use in mind (in our humble opinion). We are adept at dealing with family cost matters including preparation of the various claim forms, court bills for assessment and High Cost Case Plans for family matters including care cases.

If the regulations permit the drafting fee to be claimed in the bill, we charge at the relevant prescribed hourly rate according to the type of matter. If not, we charge 6% of the profit costs as drawn. We will not review our fee according to what is allowed on LSC Claim assessments, as the amounts being allowed are usually totally unrealistic for the work that's required to prepare the claim forms.



We prepare bills for assessment in the unusual circumstance that an inter parties costs order is made. Please refer to our Drafting page for more details of our services, as the same information applies to these types of cases.

For privately funded matters, we charge £118 p/hr for drafting bills. We will review our fees in these matters in accordance with our usual policy.



We can assist with all matters pertaining to assessment of court bills, including the filing of the bill and completion of the relevant certificates etc. Please refer to our Leave it to us page for charging information on these aspects of the assessment process.


"Bedson and Chard have assisted our firm over a number of years and we are entirely satisfied with the service they have provided.
