Costs & Litigation Funding

Quotes

Temple Garden Chambers has carved out a special place in terms of ease of use of the Bar for costs disputes.

Temple Garden Chambers has been at the forefront of costs litigation since before it was recognised as a specialist field of legal practice.

Its costs team comprises some of the country’s leading costs practitioners, who regularly act in headline-grabbing cases which shape the development of the law in this area. The breadth of TGC’s expertise has been recognised by consistently high rankings in the legal directories.

TGC’s members regularly appear before the Senior Courts Costs Office and Regional Costs Judges, in leading cases in the higher courts, up to and including the Supreme Court, and in relation to costs disputes which follow substantial litigation (including collective redress and commercial litigation).

Members of the costs team are sought after for their advisory work by solicitors (from high street through to nationwide and City firms), litigation funders and insurers. We regularly advise such clients on a broad range of both litigation funding issues and in relation to points which arise in contentious litigation.

Recognising the increasing importance of alternative dispute resolution, TGC’s barristers also act as mediators and as Counsel in mediated costs disputes.

Our costs barristers regularly speak at industry-wide conferences, while TGC is well known for its industry-leading costs newsletter, which boasts a substantial circulation.
