Negotiating legal costs is a subtle skill that can often take years of experience to develop. We have an experienced team of legal costs negotiators who have honed their skills over a number years, whilst dealing with an array of matters ranging from run of the mill road traffic accident claims to large and complex catastrophic injury matters.
We undertake negotiations on behalf of both Paying and Receiving Parties and provide tailored advice to clients based on comprehensive, item by item risk assessments. When acting for Receiving Parties, our approach is to push for favourable settlements for our clients at an early stage of the assessment process in order to facilitate early payment and benefit cashflow.
We adopt a realistic as opposed to pessimistic approach to our risk assessments and settlement advice. Our clients are kept fully informed of all material developments during the negotiation process. They are also provided with tactical advice and recommendations in relation to Part 36 and/or Calderbank offers.
Many of our clients prefer a hands-on approach to the negotiation process and prefer to be fully involved whereas others prefer to take a back seat and have limited involvement. Whichever approach you prefer, you can rest assured that our team of legal cost experts will be able to adapt as appropriate and cater to your needs.
