Supreme Court guideline hourly rates
The Practice Directions to the Supreme Court Rules 2009 have been updated with new guideline hourly rate figures for the provisional assessment of costs. Funnily enough, they are identical to those for summary assessment in other courts.
For those who keep pretending that the Guideline Hourly Rates are only relevant for low value fast-track claims, and should play no part in detailed assessment, think again. These rates also operate as the starting point figures for assessment in matters heard in the Supreme Court.
