POINTS OF DISPUTE / REPLIES

Under the Civil Procedure Rules, Points of Dispute are a requirement for disputing a bill to a contested assessment, but the service of Replies by the receiving party is optional. We have prepared many sets of Points of Dispute and Replies in respect of contested bills. This work is somewhat more specialised than drafting bills of costs and is usually charged on an hourly basis at £161 p/hr.

ALLOCATION AND LISTING SCHEDULES

We prepare accurate Allocation and Listing Costs Schedules. This often aids a fuller recovery of costs at detailed assessment, as it demonstrates that the costs have been considered and planned (and the opponents kept fully informed!). Our fee for this is calculated on an hourly basis according to the type of matter. Again, recovery will be sought in the final bill.

SCHEDULES OF COSTS

We prepare Schedules of Costs for negotiation purposes. Our fee for this is usually 5% of profit costs as drawn. If the costs are not settled, this fee is normally included in the bill of costs for assessment and recovery sought. Again, we are prepared to review our fee depending on the outcome. 

PART 8 COSTS PROCEEDINGS

We can deal with the preparation and issue of Part 8 costs proceedings on your behalf and the assessment process that follows, including the attendance of the assessment hearing. We usually charge £192 p/hr for such work.

PROFESSIONAL INDEMNITY

For your peace of mind, we have a professional indemnity insurance policy that exceeds the regulatory requirements.

COSTS INFORMATION AND UPDATES

Our Resource centre page is a source of useful information and analysis of costs issues and matters.

TURNAROUND

We normally return files to you within 21 days and will expedite urgent files. We are happy to work to a target date if provided upon file submission. At holiday and exceptionally busy times, we can take longer than 21 days.

NOT ONLY THAT

We also deal with Solicitor / Client billing, LSC High Cost Case Plans, Court of Protection Bills and Fixed Recoverable Costs Schedules. This is not an exhaustive list, so if you do not find the details of the service you require on our website, please contact us to ask to see if we can help.

FREE SUPPORT AND ADVICE

We are always happy for our brains to be picked and if we cannot answer your question there and then, we will look it up and call you back (for free!).
