Costs

Birketts’ Costs Team provides clear, pragmatic and client-focused advice on Costs Law in civil litigation and arbitration. Our team comprises qualified Costs Lawyers dedicated to all matters costs.

Costs

We routinely prepare Electronic Bills of Costs, Points of Dispute and
Replies, Statements of Costs (N260), Precedent H costs budgets and
Precedent R budget discussion reports. In addition, we provide
advisory and negotiation services on a wide range of topics including
solicitor/client issues, settlement and discontinuation. The
experience we have within the team of working in private practice
prior to specialising in Costs is a key element in ensuring that our
advice and support is user-friendly and tailored towards our
clients’ requirements.

Our client base is diverse and ranges from individuals to multinational
corporations, via legal professionals across the civil litigation sector,
with a particular emphasis in the insurance, shipping, commercial
litigation, property litigation, construction and social housing sectors.
Our experience extends to both English Court proceedings and
arbitrations, in particular LMAA and LCIA.

Regardless of the work type or client, we strive to offer a high quality,
expeditious and professional service tailored to our clients’
specific needs.

We pride ourselves in being approachable and pragmatic and our goal
is simple: to use our experience and knowledge to provide the best
service we can for our clients.

The lawyers think outside the
box and don’t just come to
you with a document of
terms and conditions – they
want to understand the
issues at hand and what you
want to achieve.
