You are spot on. In order to "win" we have to achieve a reduction of 20%, i.e. we have to demonstrate that the solicitors have overcharged by 25% or more.

As I said in my comment piece in the Gazette in January, firms who charge reasonably (or even only slightly unreasonably), would make a killing from us.

At "" however we do just that : We "check".

We do not "assert" that there is overcharging, because we recognise that the majority play by the rules.

And if the charges are reasonable, the matter ends there.

But in many low value PI cases in particular there are questions to be asked, and I think your suspicion about what will happen when the substantive cases get before the court may well be right.
