Costs in the Court of Protection
We are instructed by Deputies & Solicitors to recover fair remuneration in this sensitive and specialist area.
We are actively using the electronic bill in accordance with the Supreme Court Costs Office pilot scheme. We can prepare your bills and support you in all Court of Protection matters including complex matters which are regularly dealt with. These include bills relating to applications to the Court of Protection for Deputyship and other matters, statutory wills, and annual general management costs.
Our market-leading turnaround coupled with competitive pricing gives us an edge. Our payment structure also ensures that the Deputy suffers no shortfall in relation to our fees.
In addition to bill preparation, we offer a ‘cradle to grave’ service for all matters which require assessment by the SCCO, which we find is preferred by most of our clients. The entire process can be conducted in a paperless manner with your file being received via our portal, the electronic bill being prepared and your file being sent to the Court via the HMCTS document upload centre.
The Bill of Costs is prepared and sent to you for approval. Once approved, we proceed to e-file the bill and required attachments. Your file is then sent to the Court upon their request. Once the costs have been assessed, and you have approved the amount allowed, we then proceed to obtain the Final Costs Certificate.
Files can be collected from your home or office by our in-house or external courier. Electronic files can be uploaded to our Portal here.
Our team has an outstanding reputation for its skill, expertise, and integrity. The Company includes Costs Lawyers who are regulated by the Costs Lawyers Standards Board.
We can offer a variety of competitive fee structures to suit your individual requirements, whether on a case-by-case basis or on a service-level agreement. We would be pleased to discuss this with you at the outset.
"I regularly use SPH costing for my Court of Protection files. I receive a most professional and efficient service from them. They assist me with not only preparing the bill of costs, but are also invaluable with their aftercare service, assisting me with the recalculation of bills and preparation of summaries where required. All the staff are most helpful and a pleasure to speak to. I would highly recommend their services."
