It is important to state that there is no precise system for allocation and generally a more detailed assessment is needed before we can advise which track your case would be best suited to.
Small Claims Track
Generally the small claims track is applied to claims of less than £10,000. Under this category, the value of legal fees that can be recovered from the defendant is fixed.
Fast track will typically be used for claims valued between £10,000 and £25,000. The amount of legal fees that can be recovered is not restricted unlike the small claims track.
Multi track proceedings are generally advised for claims exceeding £25,000. Legal fees can be recovered without a limit in the same way as fast track and the main difference is that due to the complexity of higher value claims, these proceedings may require more than one day in court.
