According to Part 44 detailing general rules on costings, solicitors are allowed to charge for the work of sorting and summarising medical records as profit costs. MCB's charges form part of the solicitor's charges and, therefore, can be claimed as fee earner time and charged at the conducting fee earner's rate. And that time can also attract a success fee of up to 100%!
