Where you have an order to recover costs (including a deemed costs order), we can draft a formal bill of costs for you (or a schedule of costs where that is more appropriate).

Our aim is to maximise your costs recovery and, with provisional assessments now commonplace for most costs claims up to £75,000, (where a court will decide the amount of costs “on the papers” rather than by way of a full “in-person” hearing), it has never been more important to get your bill of costs right.

A formal bill of costs is signed by you to certify that it is accurate and complete, and we have years of experience in drafting accurate and complete bills of costs, always with the aim of maximising your costs recovery.

When drafting your bill of costs, we will also advise you as to what your likely costs recovery might be, and how best to manage that in terms of tactics and negotiations with your opponent, which we can also undertake for you, if required.

We can work for you on a conventional and competitive hourly rate basis or on the basis of a fixed fee to be agreed between us, whichever is most appropriate in your case. We will discuss this with you before undertaking work. Our fees for drafting your bill of costs will be included in the bill of costs itself and will usually be recoverable from the other side as part of the order for costs.

It is vital to have someone with experience who is on your side dealing with your costs recovery.
