Costs & Litigation Funding

superb reputation when it comes to costs

Legal 500

Chambers’ experience in this field has been described as demonstrating “strength in depth” with leading practitioners, both silks and juniors, recognised by Chambers & Partners and the Legal 500. We continue to provide day-to-day assistance to solicitors, clients, litigation funders, insurers (including legal expense and ATE insurers) on not only detailed assessments but also for costs management hearings in routine cases and also major group action litigation (such as the on-going phone hacking cases).

The members of chambers who are recommended for their expertise in costs work have been credited with providing “good, robust and commercial advice”; to be “masterful” advocates with “excellent attention to detail” and for being able to provide “good quality, clear and concise advice”. These are attributes we hope to provide to all clients regardless of the value or complexity of the particular dispute. Instructions can also be accepted on a public access basis.

TGC hosted a costs conference to a capacity audience  “Retainer to Recovery – A Journey through Modern Litigation” a copy of the notes is available here.
