Expert witness evidence

It is crucial to make sure that all the costs of the deputyship or PI trust are included in your client’s schedule of special damages.

Philippa Barton regularly provides expert reports in PI and clinical negligence cases setting out the total cost of the deputyship.

The report explains how legal fees are charged and assessed for Court of Protection work and provides details of past deputyship costs and annual estimates for the likely legal fees of the professional deputy for the rest of the client’s life. The report also includes details of one off expenses such as a statutory will application. The report also sets out additional expenses such as court fees and the cost of insurance.

Philippa can also provide evidence for the cost of setting up a PI trust and the fees of a professional trustee of a PI trust.

We also provide the following services:

  • Comment on the defendant’s report on deputyship costs,
  • Attend joint meetings with the defendant’s expert and
  • Give evidence at court.
