Costs: Update on guideline hourly rates
The Civil Justice Council's costs committee has set out the data it is initially seeking relating to expense of time as it begins work on reviewing the guideline hourly rates. It will begin with information on: grade of fee-earner and region; salary for each level of fee-earner; chargeable hours per fee-earner/region; and overhead costs allocated per fee-earner/region. The committee is due to report by March 31, 2014 and will next meet in July 2013.
