Cost benefit

As part of any dispute resolution strategy, it is important to undertake an initial cost/benefit analysis. We work with clients to understand whether the potential costs and risks associated with their dispute outweigh the likely benefit of pursuing it.

We agree the scope of our work with clients and provide them with estimates for each key stage.  Where appropriate we will agree fixed or capped fees; we also:

  • work with third party funders to help fund legal costs
  • work with ‘after the event’ insurers to insure against the cost of losing and being ordered to pay costs
  • use contingency and conditional fee agreements to share risk with clients
