I am a Costs Lawyer with over 22 years’ experience in the field of legal costs. Having successfully completed a law degree and the Law Society's final examinations, I initially worked for a small niche firm in Kensington dealing with personal injury and clinical negligence cases. I was expected to deal with claims for costs in successful cases and quickly became concerned as to the extent to which paying parties would seek to challenge the claims for costs and the importance of maximising the level of costs recovered. I became increasingly involved with costs issues and attending detailed assessments and found myself dealing with most of the firm's costs which ultimately led to my decision to specialise in this field.
I then joined a firm called Court Costing, subsequently becoming a Director. Thereafter I formed a Partnership with a long-standing colleague under the name of Beadle Procter. I am now a fully independent Costs Lawyer.
My philosophy has always been to provide my clients with the highest quality advice and service and to establish a one-to-one relationship, giving the client peace of mind that their matter is being dealt with diligently and efficiently at all times. I believe that this can only be achieved by the involvement of a single individual on each and every case from receipt of instructions to conclusion.
I have gained a very wide range of experience in dealing with both Claimant and Defendant work for a varied client base. For more details please contact me.
