Our team of experienced costs lawyers and costs consultants are based in and around London meaning we are ideally placed to attend detailed assessments, costs applications and costs management hearings in London and the Home Counties, although we offer a full nationwide service. Unlike many firms of costs lawyers or law costs draftsmen, all our fee earners are trained advocates and are therefore able to provide the highest quality of representation at court.

With many years’ experience of attending courts in and around London, including the Senior Courts Costs Office and costs appeals in the High Court, clients can be confident they are instructing genuine costs experts.

We can deal with:

  • Applications to set aside default costs certificates
  • Costs management conferences (CMCs)
  • Costs appeals
  • Detailed assessment hearings
  • Joint settlement meetings
  • Telephone hearings relating to costs

The advocates at GWS have been involved in a number of important costs cases, including:

We are happy to accept instructions on either an hourly rate basis or a fixed fee. We provide the level of expertise expected from specialist costs counsel at a cost that may surprise you.
