Show Me The Money

As ever the Gazette “online” version is running a day behind. Given that your paper copy will be unopened, on a pile of earlier editions still inside its plastic bag, you will not have seen page 34. Here Senior Costs Judge Peter Hurst summarises the latest guideline solicitors hourly rates, as used for guidance with regard to costs and defence costs orders.
Taking the middle of the three bands (metropolitan areas outside London, and not including Teesside where I am sitting) anyone want to hazard a guess at the Grade A, senior solicitor rate?
If I were to offer you now, blind, the chance to be paid the Grade D trainee/paralegal rate – would you take it?
Put your response in the comments box and then click the blue continue reading link for the actual figures.
