Part 8 Proceedings

Once a schedule of costs has been submitted to the Defendant, if we do not receive a reasonable offer within 21 days then we shall automatically review the file with a view to proceeding on to a Bill of costs. For un-litigated claims, we shall first need to issue Part 8 Proceedings in order to obtain an Order for the detailed assessment of costs. We shall produce all the associated documentation and issue the claim on your behalf. We shall then take over full conduct of the matter for you, complying with all Court Directions and timetables. We will seek to recover all the costs associated with the Part 8 process from the Defendant so this service shouldn’t cost you a penny. We can also issue proceedings in the event that the costs agreed with the Defendant remain outstanding for a period in excess of 21 days.
