What are case fees?

The Legal Services Act 2007 says that we must set a structure for charging a fee (a “case fee”) to service providers if we investigate a case that is in our jurisdiction. In most cases we are legally obliged to charge the case fee.

Where a case that we investigate turns out not to be within our jurisdiction then no case fee will be charged nor will a fee be charged if the case is dismissed or discontinued under paragraph 5.7 of our rules.
