Legal Costs - A Clients Guide
Achieving the desired outcome for your disputes matter is what our lawyers do best. Achieving the best possible costs recovery, or minimizing the costs exposure, is where our Costs Team ensure we offer a complete service that sets us apart from many other disputes law firms.
Our Costs Team is happy to receive instructions on cases where we do not act on the underlying dispute. Again, this sets us apart from many other firms in this area.
We deal with a wide range of issues arising from legal costs from the outset of the matter through to the final costs recovery either justifying, or opposing them. Working as an integral part of the firm’s Disputes teams gives us a valuable insight into costs disputes both pre and post the dispute, whether it be arbitration, litigation, mediation, or more specialised proceedings e.g. adjudication.
Costs Lawyers have "rights of audience" and "rights to conduct costs litigation" pursuant to the Legal Services Act 2007, which therefore avoids the need to instruct outside counsel, thereby saving costs.
