Typical timescales and key stages
This will depend on the type of case and whether it is dealt with in the court, tribunal or another forum. The courts are usually extremely busy so it could be 12 months or more before your matter reaches a trial and conclusion. Tribunals are generally less busy and have a quicker turnaround time normally of between 4 to 10 months. The Litigation is generally unpredictable expensive and time consuming.
