I have been involved in legal costs for over 15 years. There have been many changes throughout the legal industry during this time.
Recovering reasonable costs has become more difficult than ever. The solution to this problem would be to entrust your cost recovery to Elite Law which has a wealth of experience amongst its qualified cost lawyer and cost drafting staff.
Our professional staff will work with you closely to ensure that the best approach is taken to fully recoup what is rightfully owed. We have the latest infrastructure and IT systems which enables us to log onto your client database and provide budget and management reporting whenever required.
Your cost recovery will be in very safe hands.
I have over 20 years’ experience in dealing with all manner of costs matters . I have therefore lived through the changes brought about by CPR, the Access to Justice Act 1999, the introduction and expansion of fixed recoverable costs, the Legal Services Act 2007, LASPO and the changes brought about by the Jackson Reforms. Throughout this time, there have been a raft of technical challenges relating to all aspects of costs.
I regularly attend detailed assessments and prepare for provisional assessments throughout the UK.
I am responsible for training both internally and externally providing seminars for existing clients and potential new clients. Please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss any technical issues which you may have.
I have been with Elite for over seven years after completing my Bar Vocational Course. Initially I started as a trainee costs draftsman but soon began drafting more complex bills of costs and undertook my first detailed assessment after one year.
I later trained as a Costs Lawyer and qualified in December 2014. I became the manager of the drafting team in July 2015 and still have a very active role in drafting, usually drafting high-value bills of costs and budgets, as well as managing our team of draftsmen and providing training in budgeting to our clients new and old.
