Cost Estimates/Cost Budgeting

Following the post-April reforms, costs budgeting has become a crucial factor in the recovery of costs on all multi-track files. If costs budgets are exceeded, case law suggests that any overspend is unlikely to be recovered from the paying party. With this in mind, we will work closely with you to produce budgets that will allow you the scope to conduct your litigation at a cost that does not inhibit your performance.

All of our budgets will be based on a sound understanding of your file and we will keep a regular eye on the conduct of the claim in case the budget needs reassessing. We will prepare written submissions in relation to particular items on the budget or, if you prefer, we will attend the hearings to support the budget. Once the claim has been concluded, the same fee earner will attend to preparing a Bill of Costs within a matter of days.

Lance Mason can also produce estimates of costs for Listing and again, because of the speed with which we carry out our drafting, you will not be inconvenienced by being without your file of papers for very long.

Why not try the our service today by giving us just ten of your files? We’re confident that you’ll be delighted with the service we offer and that this will be the start of a great working relationship.
