"We deal with all aspects of complex personal injury costs from large value catastrophic injury including brain and spinal injuries, to serious RTA" Tony Armstrong, Executive Head of Costs Division

We are committed to tailoring costs solutions for every eventuality and offer a professional bespoke service.  We are able to provide a wide range of services from simple legal costs advice and preparation of bills or points of dispute, to the conduct of major ground breaking costs litigation where important principles are established, as well as costs budgeting and consultancy services.

With the changes brought about by the Jackson reforms, it is more important than ever that Practitioners are able to maximise their costs recovery under the new regime, and release cash locked up in WIP into their business in the shortest possible time.

We are committed to maximising costs recovery for our clients and adding value to their bottom line.  We ensure all our Costs Consultants are fully trained in the CPR and relevant case law, as well as retainer issues and correct wording of costs orders/settlement agreements.

We have staff who deal with both Defendant and Claimant work in all of the categories below, but we do operate strict conflict checks and would never knowingly act against an existing client.
