Defamation Cases – Fixed Fee Services 
All Prices exclude VAT which will be added at 20% if applicable 

Before commencing any action for defamation a formal letter before action must be served.  

If you seek to know the merits of starting a case i can give a written advice and I charge 3 hours at £250ph to give you that written advice. 

I can draft a letter before action – Fees start at £250. 

If the LBA is ignored then you will need to consider commencing proceedings with a Particulars of Claim having to be issued along with the court forms. If you seek to commence Defamation proceedings I charge £2,500 to deal with all matters up to a first court hearing.

Ongoing representation will be charged at £400 for a hearing less than 1/2 day, £650 for 1/2 day hearing and £1,500 for a full day hearing. 

 

Notes
1. VAT is payable (where applicable) in addition to my fees, and you may also need to pay court fees in addition to my fees. 

2. If a hearing is more than a 60 mile round trip you will also have to meet my petrol costs 

3. The fixed fee scheme requires you to provide reasonable instructions in a reasonable and timely manner. If you fail to do so I am entitled to withdraw my services. 

4. The fees must be paid in advance before I can commence work for you.

5. If your claim succeeds I will seek that your costs are paid by the other side 

5. Fixed fees are not suitable for everyone.  I will discuss them with you carefully before going ahead.  I reserve the right to refuse to offer fixed fees and if so I charge an hourly rate of £190 PH.
