MPR Solicitors are also members of the specialist High Cost Case Panel of the Legal Aid Agency which enables them to take on large and complex cases under legal aid funding where most firms not on the government’s panel are unable to. The criteria to enable firms to get onto the HCC Panel (formerly known as the VHCC Fraud Panel) are very strict and quality assured. The firm was one of the original members of the VHCC Fraud Panel.
