Paper Pushing

Amongst recent gripes has been the page count process central to calculations of the Crown Court Litigators Fee.
As anticipated in the above link, a new page count process has been launched from May 1st.
In addition to the instigation of “running totals” of PPE there is a new end of case “validation” process. The Advocate will complete a form confirming agreed PPE for entry onto CREST. Where there is disagreement between the defence and the CPS the Court officer will decide and if necessary a post determination appeal can be made.
Happy claiming!
