Our industry leading legal costs specialists have the experience, knowledge and expertise to achieve the best possible results in every case
We act in cases across the full spectrum of commercial disputes.
Our instructing solicitors in these cases include leading City firms, major regional players, sole practitioners and in-house legal departments. We are experienced in dealing with costs of litigation and arbitration; and cases in which costs have been incurred in a foreign jurisdiction.
Our team includes costs lawyers and solicitors who are genuine experts in dealing with clinical negligence cases. We act in cases ranging from mis- and delayed diagnosis, through to catastrophic birth injuries. We can provide assistance at any stage of the claim, including in obtaining early payments on account of costs.
We act in a wide variety of personal injury claims and have been involved in a number of test cases relating to the application of fixed recoverable costs. We appreciate the importance to personal injury lawyers of the fine balance between cashflow and maximising recovery in each case.
Our substantial experience in dealing with Court of Protection costs allows us to draft bills which identify the key challenges faced when undertaking the work in order to ensure an appropriate level of remuneration is achieved. With our dedicated COP team, you are assured the best results.
Our experts understand the arguments required to defend any challenge to your invoices, which also makes them perfectly placed to advise on challenging invoices when instructed by clients. Our Solicitor-client team can help you with a full range of services in relation to this growing area of costs dispute, including advice; issuing or defending solicitor-own client assessment proceedings; drafting breakdowns of costs, points of dispute or replies; and attending assessments of your invoices. We can also assist with quantification of Part 7 claims which include an element of solicitor/own client dispute.
We can assist in any issue which is related to legal costs. Recent examples include valuing WIP in advance of the merger of firms of solicitors; providing Part 35 expert evidence in professional negligence claims brought against costs professionals; and assisting with cashflow projections.
