We will conduct any further preparatory work, obtain further instructions from you if necessary and answer any follow up queries you have.

We cannot provide a timescale of when your hearing will take place, as this depends on the court listing for that day.

We or our representative will attend court on the day and meet with you before going to the court. We anticipate being at court for half a day.

We will discuss the outcome with you. If advice is required on appeal, this will carry an additional cost.
