Claimant solicitors work 36/8
I’ve just come across a bill of costs where a total of 28 hours 24 minutes (including 25 hours on one task) is claimed by the same fee earner for work undertaken on 4 March 2010. The fee earner is to be congratulated for his industriousness if not for the accuracy of his time sheets or basic arithmetic.
Chris’ suggestion on the comments section of a previous post for one of our Legal Costs Blog t-shirts to carry the slogan: "Team Claimant: helping solicitors work 36/8!" doesn’t sound so silly after all.
