Important – Increase in court fees scheduled for next week
Royds LLP is advising all our clients and business contacts that controversial increases in court fees are set to take effect from Monday (March 9th).
The changes, which will see a five per cent levy on all claims over £10,000, were approved in the House of Commons last week. This could see parties paying up to six times more than at present.
The increases have been condemned by legal bodies including the Law Society and Bar Council, who fear that the new regime will make it harder for ordinary people to get justice.
Royds invites anyone with a pending civil suit to contact the Litigation team urgently if they require any advice.
