  • Statement of costs

    Hi I have a court case coming up, now i have spent a lot of time and now money printing off my defense, which had to be copied x3 times for the judge and the claimant (approx 300 pages in colour) i know i will need to send these and i will send them via recorded delivery as they need to be at the court by 4pm on the 3rd of June
    all these costs i want to claim back but my understanding of for N260 it states that only people can claim with a qualification.
    Am I reading it right or is there another form / way to fill it out?

    (A) Solicitors and Chartered Legal Executives with over eight years post qualification experience including at least eight years litigation experience. (B) Solicitors and Chartered Legal Executives with over four years post qualification experience including at least four years litigation experience. (C) Other solicitors and Chartered Legal Executives and fee earners of equivalent experience. (D) Trainee solicitors, paralegals and other fee earners. “Chartered Legal Executive” means a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEx). Those who are not Fellows of CILEx are not entitled to call themselves Chartered Legal Executives and in principle are therefore not entitled to the same hourly rate as a Chartered Legal Executive.
