Lawyers and experts are on the same team – lawyers need to learn to instruct properly; experts need to report in a focused and timely manner. By training lawyers and experts together we can provide both essential learning and an important opportunity to network together and discuss issues and concerns.
Under the Fixed Recoverable Costs proposals there could be changes to the way in which experts prepare reports, including a capping of experts fees at about £1,200 for ALL reports! Preparing the best report possible on a budget will be an essential skill. Solicitors will have to help experts achieve this – the quality of the lawyers instructions to the expert will be more important than ever, and you will need to be able to identify how to strip down the medical notes to make sure the expert has the minimum amount of documentation which is of maximum importance. Every page of the enclosures will need to be relevant, this will be a new skill for many solicitors.
This seminar, to be held on the evening of 24 January at Exchange Chambers in Liverpool, is the first expert and solicitor training event in what we plan will be a series of nationwide events, and will focus on Legal Instructions, Report Writing and the importance of working together.
This is intended to be an interactive session where the views of lawyers and experts are encouraged and welcomed and delegates will have the opportunity to network over drinks after the seminar.
