Throughout a large loss claim, we act as an extension of the insurance/ litigation team and are always on hand to provide the crucial support needed to achieve the best possible outcome. This collaborative approach gives us even greater insight into the needs and demands of our clients, ensuring we are always devising the right strategy to meet their needs.
Our budget team was created in 2013 to meet the demand of this new facet of civil litigation. Our service includes advocacy at Costs and Case Management Conferences so that our clients always have an advocate with a keen eye on the costs aspect of hearings.
We have operated in the fixed costs arena since its inception and have been involved in several leading cases over the last decade, including Broadhurst v Tan and Qader v Esure. Our experience also led to us developing our innovative Fixed Costs Validator which provides both valuable support and significant savings to our insurance clients.
The team handle over 1,000 infant approval matters every year, including the negotiation of fixed and standard costs, to ensure our clients only pay costs that are reasonably recoverable by claimants.
We’re strong believers in the benefits that ADR can bring to our clients. The traditional approach to costs is slow and costly, often with unnecessary delay built in. In appropriate cases we adopt a pro-active ADR strategy that delivers proven results, including 70% average reduction in lifecycle, 80% average reduction in costs of assessment, £41,500 average additional indemnity spend saving.
We are highly skilled across a wide range of civil and commercial matters including judicial review, all types of insurance dispute (from fixed costs to catastrophic personal injury claim of the utmost severity and value) and commercial litigation, as well as: Negotiation, Budgeting, Drafting Points of Dispute, Costs recovery, Advocacy
