Practitioners must claim for the actual time spent on a matter, up to the maximum allowable.
Changing from solicitor advocate to solicitor and counsel
If a practitioner has been granted aid for trial preparation for solicitor advocate and determines that they wish to proceed with the trial with counsel, the solicitor advocate trial preparation grant will be cancelled and a new grant will be issued for trial preparation for solicitor and counsel.
Practitioners may claim up to the entire sundries fee granted. The sundries fee includes all photocopying, phone calls, faxes and stamps. The fees provided are fixed. There are no exceptions for exceeding the sundries grant provided.
Specific disbursements such as subpoena fees and expert reports are subject to separate grants of aid (request separately).
