Commitment to excellence, dependability & professionalism

Our services are designed to be comprehensive and flexible. Our aim is to be a valuable extension to our clients’ litigation departments or legal teams to provide effective legal costs solutions and deliver the highest levels of client satisfaction. In this era of rapidly changing costs law and principles, it is essential for litigators and legal professionals to have immediate access to an experienced costs expert at all times for trusted legal costs advice.

The services we provide include dealing with day to day costs issues as well as acting on specific instructions and projects in respect of very large, important and high-value litigation.

We have extensive experience of costs budgeting and costs management having been involved in the Defamation Proceedings Costs Management Pilot Scheme as early as 2009.

We act in the preparation and opposition of claims for costs. As an independent firm we pride ourselves on acting both for receiving and paying parties and always striving to obtain the best result in either scenario.

We provide clients with valuable advice and deliver costs seminars on a wide range of practice areas to ensure our clients are always up to date on developments in costs law and practice. Our involvement and services can be tailored to your requirements.

Our Fee Structure is clear and transparent.

Costs Budgeting & Management

We offer a full costs budgeting and management service which includes:

  • the preparation of your costs budgets
  • considering your opponent’s budget
  • preparing composite comparison tables
  • conducting budget discussions and preparing budget discussion reports
  • attending as advocate at costs management hearings and CCMCs.

Once a costs budget has been approved by the Court we provide costs project management services, including monitoring costs incurred and advising as to any applications to revise the approved costs budgets.

Security of Instructions

Our offices contain our own private designated DX collection and delivery office.

All of our costs consultants are based at our offices in Bishopsgate, London. Due to the sensitive nature of some of the work that we undertake, our offices are fully secured. We do not outsource or sub-contract work to freelance costs draftsman.
