Living WIth Rejection

Hands up our client claimed the wrong Care graduated fee.

The LSC, quite correctly, rejected this advising they should claim a fee for “2 or more Joined Parties” (for non Care lawyers this does not exist) and suggesting an actual fee from a non-applicable schedule.

They did so and the LSC, quite rightly, rejected this again. This time they advised the firm to claim a High Court fee – for a matter which concluded in the FPC.

We have spent a full hour going through all the related papers trying to sort this out (we are helping them try get their reject rate down). What are the odds on our correctly chosen SF likewise getting bounced?

Only asking for a bit of mutual understanding where mistakes are made.
