Our 100% record of providing reports to deadline ensures that cases within the Public Law Outline Revised Agenda remain on the ‘standard’ track of 26 weeks.

I did want to say though that that was one of the best reports I have ever had from you, it was in-depth and very clear without any hesitation. It’s the first time mum has accepted the situation which again confirms how clear the report is.Liz Jones, Partner, Solicitor-Advocate (Higher Courts Civil), For and on behalf of Birkett Long LLP
