Can a McKenzie Friend help me with court bundles?
Court bundles can be intimidating to put together or to be faced with in a trial.
One of the tools we offer is assistance in putting them together as well as how to read and understand them of course.
Our systematic approach to constructing court bundles (in line with the rules guiding it (Practice Direction 27A
) means every document and piece of paper that needs to before the court will be there.
We’ll help you avoid what we sometimes call `The Tesco Carrier Bag of Life
‘ – a mass of disorganised documents that contain an unfindable but vital document at a crucial moment.
Court bundles – do not leave it to chance
Sadly, our experience we find for a number of reasons litigants in person often face trials with little or no evidence when the bundles submitted to the court have been prepared by a legally-assisted opposition. Our extensive experience in bundle preparation and advising litigants in person in the days leading up to a trial avoids this potential pitfall.
When a bundle is appropriate we strongly recommend you produce your own bundles.
With the stakes so high we often advise that regardless of the situation you provide your own bundle. Our bundle preparation service will ensure you arrive in court confident your evidence is used during a trial and is compliant with Practice Direction. Our experience means we are able to assemble bundles (often running into hundreds of pages) and assisting to ensure they are filed in an efficient and timely manner.
We will always tailor our service to your requirements; from giving advice all the way to doing all the work. Contact us for more details and relax – we are here to make things easy for you and to let you focus on what you need to!
