It is important to highlight that there are a wide range of factors which may impact upon the timescale that an issue may be dealt with. Timescales can vary based on the availability of an individual barrister, the complexity of the case, the availability of clients or witnesses, the amount of evidence and paperwork that needs to be reviewed, the need to obtain further documentation or evidence which may unexpectedly arise or the availability of courts and judges to deal with the case. We will always endeavour to provide the most accurate picture of these possible delays as soon as possible after they arise.
