Expert Witness Services

Our team members are frequently asked by solicitors acting on behalf of claimants to help them prepare the right figures to put into a schedule of loss and properly quantify the Court of Protection fees that are payable in a case. We have seen schedules which completely undervalue a client’s claim in this regard, and this can seriously prejudice the claimant in the future. Schedules in Court of Protection cases can extend to £200,000 or more and therefore it is important that they are valued properly to ensure that the Claimant’s interests are properly looked after.

In addition, we act on behalf of several Defendants in examining the witness statement put forward by the claimant’s expert in relation to Court of Protection fees to make sure it is sensible and fair. 

If you would like to speak to one of our team regarding the making of a Court of Protection costs witness statement from either a claimant’s or a defendant’s perspective (or acting as a joint witness), please do not hesitate to let us know.
