  • Part 36 offer

    Hi all, Regarding asking a typical high street solicitor (who is already familiar with the entirety of a case) to prepare a part 36 offer: (1) how much would this typical cost? and (2) typically how long will it take for a solicitor to prepare and serve this part 36 offer? ( e.g. would it take minutes? hours? days? weeks?) Thanks everyone

    It is difficult to measure how much and how long it takes for a solicitor to prepare and serve the part 36 offer. It solely depends on the lawyer and law firm. Therefore, the best would be to ring the law firm you have in mind and ask them to give you an estimate price and time.

    However, if you think your solicitor is taking too long and/or charging unreasonable price, you can want to consider to check this website out. (https://www.gov.uk/challenge-solicitors-bill)

    I am a law student undertaking work experience on the LegalBeagles forum. My advice is from my own experience only and is given without liability. If in any doubt, please contact a regulated and insured legal professional to seek further advice.

      Agree with the above post. Experience has taught me that you MUST always ask for a costs estimate at the outset in matters where Solicitors are charging out at an hourly rate. If you fail to do this, costs can quite easily escalate. I suspect drawing a Part 36 offer should take no longer than an hour, but then you also have to factor in the time it would take to take instructions and get an understanding of the background of the matter. The experience of the Solicitor drawing up the Part 36 offer will also impact costs as Solicitors with a higher level of experience will charge a higher hourly rate then say for example a relatively newly qualified Solicitor. If you need advice in relation to costs my sole experience in the past with the firm below was good. Hope it all works out for you (at an affordable cost!!)
