Timescales

We endeavour to meet our client's deadline and have a consistently high success rate in doing so. There may be occasions where times will vary due to the barrister's availability, requirement and review of further documents and on the complexity of a specific case and delays emanating from the response of other parties out of our control.

Our general turn round of work varies from a few days to 2 weeks (or ongoing) and if the work is urgent, we can respond on the same day at short notice.
