LSC Guidance on new graduated fees order

New fees to apply to all work after 4 August

The LSC has published a summary on their website providing further information on the new graduated fees arrangements due to take effect from 4 August.

The revised fees were announced in the recent Community Legal Service (Funding) (Counsel in Family Proceedings) (Amendment) Order 2009 which introduces increases in the base fees payable in public law children cases, changes to certain special issue payments and a requirement on counsel to provide information in support of certain claims for a special preparation fee.
