Christine Marsh and Tom Brocklebank deal with legal costs on a daily basis, and here they provide an insight into file management and what simple steps you could do to help with costs recovery.

Christine deals with costs from a Private Client and Court of Protection viewpoint, including looking at file notes, time recording, client care letters, and general management work. There are also topics covering crucial case law including PLK & Ors, Philpott, Jamie Walker and Leighanne Radcliffe.

Tom considers matters from a litigation perspective, where costs are payable by one party to another. Issues considered include the different types of retainers that are available, hourly rates and the indemnity principle, Costs Budgets, and interim payments. This is all aimed at helping you recover your costs and ease cashflow.

These top tips can be factored into your everyday working practices, with a view to helping maximise costs recovery.

Please contact Christine for details of the historic case law mentioned throughout relating to the Court of Protection matters at christine.marsh@paramountlegalcosts.co.uk
