Factors that could make a case more complex:
There will be an additional charge for Counsel attending a Tribunal Hearing (see below). Generally, we would allow 1 to 5 days for a hearing depending on the complexity of your case.

How long will my matter take?
The time that it takes from taking your initial instructions to the final resolution of your matter depends largely on the stage at which your case is resolved. If a settlement is reached during pre-claim conciliation, your case is likely to take 4 to 6 weeks. If your claim proceeds to a Final Hearing, your case is likely to take anything between 9 to 12 months. This is just an estimate and we will of course be able to give you a more accurate timescale once we have more information and as the matter progresses.
The costs information given on this website is general. You will be given more precise and personalised information later once we are aware of all the circumstances of your matter.
Please note we may have to revise our fee estimate if exceptional circumstances arise in your matter.
