Costs Budget Negotiations
Our experienced costs professionals specialise in drafting and negotiating accurate costs budgets, which are also known as Precedent H. Skillful drafting of the document ensures you have a high chance of it being approved by the opposing party with little negotiation needed, which is both cost and time efficient.
The Precedent H is prepared after all documents and factors within in your case, such as fee earner hourly rates and fees for experts required for input, are looked over and assessed. From these factors our costs solicitors can make a confident and accurate forecast of costs to present in the Precedent H.
When the costs budget has been exchanged with the paying party, they can then return their Precedent R which explains their disagreement on any costs the claimant solicitors have made.
If our experts are working for clients on the paying party, their years of experience in drafting and negotiating costs budgets provides them with relevant skills to negotiate their disputes in the Precedent R, to save proceedings progressing to a CCMC.
Bill of Costs Negotiations
Once a case has concluded, our expert legal costs negotiators can assist with the drafting of your Bill of Costs. In order to do this, all documents and files related to the case must be handed to the costing experts for them to get a full view of all the costs involved.
Our Costs Draftsmen and Costs Lawyers can assist in the drafting of your Bill of Costs following an order or Part 36 offer, as well as proposing Points of Dispute and Points of Reply. So, no matter if you are the receiving party or the paying party, our experts are equipped to help you.
Sometimes both parties fail to come to an agreement on costs, in which case they must move forward to a detailed assessment hearing for a judge to decide which costs claims are to be successful. If this happens our team are qualified to conduct the proceedings on your behalf.
