Cost Estimates & Schedules
Pursuant to Part 6 of the Cost Practice Direction, legal Cost Estimates are a significant factor in a Solicitor’s recoverable costs. Lord Justice Jackson, in his recommendations, highlighted the importance of estimates as one of many of the foundations of his reforms.
It is vital that cost estimates for legal expenditure are detailed and precise, and reflect the true value of the overall claim. Part 6 of the Cost Practice Direction provides that a Court can reduce costs if the Solicitor’s overall costs differ from the estimate by no more than 20%.
