The Unique Nature of a Cost Lawyer
Cost Lawyers can help both on a case-by-case basis, and as an integrated part of your strategic team. The highly complex areas of Legal Costs can be simplified and de- risked by working with such specialist advisors :
• Drafting fee arrangements and retainers between solicitors and their clients
• Dealing with between the party costs recoveries.
• Drafting bills and schedules of costs
• Accurately drafting Cost Budgets (Precedent H), the negotiation of Budgets (Precedent R), and the application for variations (Precedent T) to maximise the between the parties cost recoveries.
• Representing you at CCMC
• Advising in Solicitor/client disputes
We also offer Cost Training and Strategy sessions to provide guidance on specific case law decisions to better inform and up skill your firm's solicitors.
At Integral we make a genuine effort to understand our client's objectives to become their most trusted advisors.
We truly believe that if our clients thrive – we all do.
