COURT COSTS PUT SMES AT A DISADVANTAGE
BIG BUSINESS THE ONLY WINNERS SINCE MOJ CHANGES
Ferguson Financial Solicitors warned today that soaring civil court fees are making the pursuit of justice too expensive for many small firms.
According to the legal firm, banks and other big businesses are increasingly getting away with poor advice and mis-selling financial products.
Large rises in the cost of taking a civil case to court were imposed by the Ministry of Justice in March this year. The Government has since announced further rises – in some cases by as much as 100 per cent.
