Court of Protection Costs: The hourly rate after PLK

Court of Protection Costs: The hourly rate after PLK


Get up to speed with the practical effects on the hourly rate that can be claimed after the decision in PLK. Recording of webinar broadcast on 10th December 2020.

In association with A&M Bacon

In September 2020, the judgment in PLK and Others was published and the profession welcomed the notion that hourly rates applied to Court of Protection work were out of date and it was deemed reasonable for uplifts of up to 20% to be applied to the guideline hourly rates (GHR). 

However, in the days that followed the SCCO published various practice directions and guidance notes to ensure practitioners would continue to adhere to the indemnity principle. So what is the position now that the dust has settled? 

In this recorded webinar, Paul Cruickshanks of A&M Bacon updates you on:

  • what new rates can be applied across the country
  • Pitfalls to be avoided when applying the new rates
  • How best to apply the new rates to ensure the indemnity principle is not breached
  • Discussion; what about sole deputyship appointments
  • Factors to consider with regard to the OPG
  • When it may be appropriate to apply enhanced hourly rates
