A Costs Draftsman, Newcastle, is a specialist legal cost consultant who can help with the recovery of costs as a result of any court case, as well as the negotiation and contesting of legal fees.
The Costs Draftsmen on our team at Greener Costs are highly experienced and have worked on a range of costs cases covering many areas of law, from large commercial disputes to personal injury and medical negligence claims. Our team possess many years of experience and knowledge of legal matters and are well-equipped to deal with costs management and costs negotiations.
What Does a Costs Draftsman Do?
A Costs Draftsman or Costs Lawyer is the only role in the legal industry that solely focuses on claims for costs, meaning they have significant expertise and skill in their niche area.
The role of a Costs Draftsman is typically centered around the detailed assessment process of costs. However, law costs draftsmen are able to work on any legal case that involves costs, including costs payable between the parties where the unsuccessful party pays the successful party, solicitor and client costs and legal aid where a solicitor is representing a client with public funding.
Ultimately, Costs Draftspersons will go through all of the solicitor’s or fee earner’s files and draw up a bill to the client for the services they have used as well as the solicitor’s time. They do this through the preparation of Costs Budgets (Precedent H), Statements of Costs (N260) and detailed bills of costs.
What are the Benefits of Using a Costs Draftsman?
From our extensive experience in dealing with a range of legal costs, we can ensure you maximise your costs recovery and we will oversee that all documents are accurate to avoid any confusion or repercussions.
In-house teams of Costs Draftsmen can be extremely expensive and can also limit the analysis of profit recoveries due to the lack of external data to process. It is also important to mention that many solicitors in law firms are far too preoccupied with other duties to spend the appropriate amount of time needed looking at and analysing their legal costs.
At Greener Costs we can ensure quick turnaround agreements, which under most circumstances can be much more efficient than clients completing the work themselves in-house.
