(These hourly rates do not apply to Judicial Review cases or appeals in the Court of Appeal or Supreme Court which attract a higher hourly rate. If your case concerns Judicial Review proceedings or an appeal in the Court of Appeal or Supreme Court, we will apply the Solicitors’ guideline hourly rates set out at https://www.gov.uk/guidance/solicitors-guideline-hourly-rates).
