"When firms in London 3 areas (NW1, for example) routinely charge London 1 rates for the clin neg and ancillary work they do, that does tend to bring significant, upward pressure to bear on the costs of dealing with these claims. Of course, in doing so, they will only have their clients' interests at heart."
Are you referring here to the guideline hourly rates, intended as they are to be used in summary assessments for routine matters lasting no more than one day, and thus of no application to the vast majority of clinical negligence claims?
