This is a fixed-price service. The cost in any individual case will depend on the seniority of the Expert and the volume of papers and complexity of the dispute. For a dispute involving up to one lever arch file of background papers and submissions by two public bodies not exceeding 15 pages, the Expert’s cost will be as follows:
- QC: £2,500 plus VAT
- Very Senior Junior (12 years’ Call or more): £2,000 plus VAT
- Senior Junior (8 to 12 years’ Call): £1,500 plus VAT
- Junior (under 8 years’ Call): £1,000 plus VAT
Additional fees may be incurred if the parties seek to rely on more than one lever arch file of documents or if (exceptionally) a hearing is needed before the expert can produce a determination.
