* Timescales for completion of work

In terms of timescales, there can be instances where bill preparation can be delayed, due to unforseen matters such as incomplete information on file, missing documentation, delays with Counsel or other fee information or case complications. Turnaround times therefore cannot be contractually guaranteed. Conscious of the importance of your firm's cash flow however rest assured prompt claim/bill preparation is always a high priority.
