Update on SCCO Guideline Hourly Rates…

As many solicitors are aware, the Ministry of Justice is currently undertaking a review of the SCCO Guideline Hourly Rates. The hourly rates have not been increased since 2010.

The Ministry of Justice has invited all law firms to provide their responses by no later than 29 November 2013. The Costs Committee will thereafter meet next month to discuss the responses received and collate additional evidence. They will report to the Master of the Rolls in March 2014.

In light of this, we strongly urge all our readers to complete the questionnaire (which will take less than an hour), in order to ensure reasonable consideration can be given to the guideline hourly rates!
