What we do

Our aim is simple: to provide the best possible service to all of our clients in terms of quality, speed and efficiency. You can trust our expertise to relieve you of the burden of dealing with costs and allowing you to focus on fee earning.

Every client is special to us and we tailor our services to meet the individual needs of our client. Upon receipt of instructions we immediately identify the needs of the client, the appropriate level of resources to be assigned to the instruction and deal with matters professionally, accurately and proportionately.

Costs Recovery

Upon receipt of your instructions the matter is allocated to a specific fee earner who will deal with the same.

Your file will be costed and the draft Bill of Costs submitted to you for approval as soon as possible.

Upon receipt of approval of the draft, the Bill of Costs is immediately engrossed and either returned to you for service or served by us upon the paying party if we are instructed to undertake negotiations on your behalf.

Any offers received will be discussed with you and the appropriate advice given as to the issues involved and any potential pitfalls of proceeding to assessment.

If settlement is not achieved we will, after obtaining your instructions on the Points of Dispute, prepare Replies and set the matter down for hearing if no settlement can be achieved.

We will attend the detailed assessment on your behalf and, immediately upon conclusion of the matter, report back to you upon the outcome.

Throughout the process we will offer advice all along the way in terms of maximising costs, appropriate offers, advice on offers received and the correct level of settlement.

Disputing Costs

Your instructions are allocated to a specific fee earner.

We will analyse the opponent’s claim for costs in conjunction with your file and provide advice as to the costs claimed.

We will prepare Points of Dispute within the specified time limit and return the same to you for approval.

We will advise on offers to be made with regard to the issues involved, and any potential pitfalls, with a view to reducing your client’s liability to pay costs as far as possible.

We can negotiate with the opponent on your behalf. If costs cannot be agreed by negotiation, we will attend the detailed assessment on your behalf and, immediately upon conclusion of the matter, report back to you upon the outcome.

Public Funding

Your instructions are allocated to a specific fee earner.

Your file will be costed and the draft Bill of Costs or appropriate CLS Claim Form will be submitted for approval as soon as possible. In High Costs Case matters, the Plan will be prepared along with CLS Claim Forms supporting the claim for pre-contract costs and returned for your approval as soon as possible.

Your file will be returned, ordered for provisional assessment. In circumstances where a Bill of Costs has been prepared, the papers as returned will be accompanied by pages 1 and 2 of a CLS CLAIM1 form.

We will advise on any certificate limitation issues. We will apply an appropriate enhancement, with justification, as demanded by the individual matter.
