Litigation Support and Expert Witness Drafting Service
The cost of a professional deputy or trustee to manage the funds of your client for a lifetime can be considerable, and can be an additional head of loss, significantly increasing the value of the claim. That’s why JMW’s highly experienced team works closely with litigators as soon as the issue of capacity is considered, to maximise the recovery.
Our nationally recognised team can provide expert litigation support and our professional deputies and trustees are fully equipped to deal with any case.
If you require legal advice, litigation support or information about expert witness statement drafting, contact our specialist team of solicitors today. Call us on 0345 872 6666, or fill in our online enquiry form to request a call back at a time that is convenient for you.
How JMW Can Help
At JMW, we are dedicated to supporting litigation solicitors and their clients throughout personal injury, clinical negligence and criminal injuries claims with the following:
What Our Clients Say
Drafting Expert Witness Statements
We draft detailed witness statements and schedules of past and future projected costs for professional fees for Court of Protection and deputy costs, or trustee costs if a personal injury trust is more appropriate.
The team will advise you throughout the litigation, justifying the head of loss, advising on issues of capacity, proportionality, management of interim damages and the recoverability of expenditure.
Our solicitors are able to meet tight litigation deadlines, attend conferences, act as a single joint expert, provide joint statements with the defendant and give evidence at court. We pride ourselves on helping you to recover the full and proper professional costs for an additional head of loss, bolstering the value of the settlement so that your client’s needs can be met throughout their lifetime.
Acting as Professional Deputy or Trustee
As the court tends to favour a professional deputy or trustee in complex or high-value cases, we can act as deputy or trustee for clients during litigation and claims to the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority.
We ensure that our professional costs are accurately included as part of the claim and maintain paperwork and accounts required for the litigation process. We also manage interim damages and support the litigator with putting in place a full package of care, support and therapies.
Working closely with the client and their family while the case is still in litigation, and visiting clients at their home in down dress, helps us to build long-lasting relationships. We continue to support the client post-settlement, using the settlement funds you have worked hard to secure to promote their independence and maximise their quality of life.
You can step away post settlement, knowing that your client’s future financial security is in the best of hands.
