I am the in-house Advocate and owner at The Legal Costs Experts, and I am confident that we can increase your profit costs recovery, yet do it quicker than your current provider.
The main reason I am so confident is on many occasions we are recovering in excess of guideline rates even for non qualified staff. In fact we have been successful six times already this year at Assessment when the Judge has agreed with our argument that guideline rates only apply to Summary Assessment following Trial.
For example only last month we recovered £250.00 an hour for a holiday sickness claim that settled for £3500.00 damages. We also recovered £217.00 for a noise induced hearing loss case the month before. There are more.
We can also change your retainer to ensure all your staff can claim up to £250.00 hour for every case.
Our philosophy is simple how much can we get and how fast can we do it.
The CPR says the opponent must make interim costs payments unless there is good reason not to, we request interim payments with case law once the bill is served and make Applications when necessary.
Most of our cases settle within 6-8 weeks of service of the bill. We have no targets so always ensure the maximum recovery, and we give you expert advice on the offer unlike some firms who leave you to decide. We put quality above quantity and keep caseloads small so every case is progressed every 48 hours.
Payment & Fees
Once the case is settled we then chase for your costs cheque. You only pay us once you have been paid, and our fees are recovered from the opponent but paid to you. Our fees will only be charged at Grade D no matter the size of the case.
On litigated cases we also recover your interest at 8% which some other firms do not do and just give you global offers.
We have over 25 years experience in Legal Costs, and I have spoken at the Law Society Conference on the subject along with the likes of Kerry Underwood.
I am also an Advocate and have attended over 150 Hearings having been successful on the majority. I deal personally with all hearings so there are no fees to be paid to Counsel, I also deal with all negotiations so you are in good hands.
Get the most from every case!
With the likely increase in the Small Claims limit now is the time to think about getting the most from every case. We estimate time when needed as some fee earners are not great at time recording!
