Client - Solicitor Costs Disputes

When a dispute about fees arises between Solicitor and Client, matters can become personal and difficult.

With our in depth experience of detailed assessments and litigation arising from sections 64-74 of the Solicitors Act 1974, and its application in Part 46 of the Civil Procedure Rules (CPR), we pride ourselves in our ability to stand back from the acrimony in these circumstances and review lawyer client dispute cases with a view to resolving issues in the most economic and effective manner.

For the Solicitor

We can assist with opposing Applications for Assessment, dealing with Part 8 Proceedings and once an order is obtained dealing with detailed assessment proceedings to their conclusion.

We achieve this by:

  • Preparing breakdown of costs for client
  • Preparing evidence in response to application for assessment
  • Preparing cash account
  • Advocacy on application for assessment
  • Preparing breakdown of costs for Solicitor’s Act Assessment
  • Preparing replies to points in dispute
  • Advice on Quantum
  • Advocacy on Detailed Assessment Hearing
