Costs law and litigation funding is an area of considerable importance and rapid change for lawyers. Our barristers pride themselves on keeping abreast of the latest legal developments to provide unrivalled expert advice.
Our barristers have a proven track record representing a broad client base in relation to all aspects of costs and funding, making them a popular choice with both injury and non-injury lawyers alike. They are trusted advisors to litigators and work closely with costs draftsman to provide advice and advocacy in this often-complex area of law.
Members have specialist expertise in Conditional Fee Agreements, Damages-based agreements and in Group Litigation. This includes drafting CFAs, GLOs, costs sharing orders and providing advice on funding combinations. Representation includes CFA enforcement hearings, cost capping and all aspects of non-party costs orders (typically against insurers or solicitors).
Fees can be discussed prior to the commencement of work. Value for money is assured as fees for each case can be assessed individually and are based upon the complexity and value of the case, seniority of counsel and time spent in preparation.
All barristers will consider undertaking work on a CFA basis, where applicable. A robust management system ensures that agreed turn-around times are fulfilled.
