Costs Drafting and Assessment

When it comes to quantification of costs, we can add value for a client from the moment a costs order, or deemed order, has been made.

The assessment of legal costs can be a difficult, drawn out process and will often involve technical points which can significantly affect the sums recovered.

At Renvilles, we devise a robust strategy from the very outset.  This takes into account a host of factors such as the conduct of the preceding litigation, the likely forum for the assessment hearing and the main risk factors that are present in the costs claim.       

Our gold standard client care regime operates throughout the process.  This means we promptly acknowledge instructions, inform clients about timescales, expedite matters when required, and keep clients regularly updated.  We are on hand at all times to advise on every aspect of the process.

We recognise that it may sometimes be impractical for clients to release paper files and we therefore offer a service to produce bills and breakdowns at your offices at no extra charge.

We can handle the entire assessment process, or assist on an ad hoc basis. Many of our clients start out by seeking assistance on one aspect of assessment, only to later recognise the value we can add by conducting the entire process. 

Most importantly, every civil costs matter is conducted by a qualified, regulated and authorised Costs Lawyer and this applies to every aspect of the process.
