We are expert and proven tacticians in this field. In particular we advise you on the right offers to make at the right time, as we believe that Sun Tzu was spot on when he said, “The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.”
We provide a high quality and prompt service to our numerous external law firms and insurer clients in all legal costs. Where possible we believe in face to face client relationships. We like to know the people that we are doing work for and provide CPD accredited training to our clients too. That way, we get an insight into them and their business and understand how best to secure the outcomes that they are looking for. Clients can expect a robust but realistic approach, with a real commitment to achieving excellent results.
As part of a thriving law firm the Costs practise at Glaisyers has an instinctive commercial understanding of the importance of costs income to the external law firms that instruct us. Whilst proud to be in house at Glaisyers, most of our work comes from other external law firms and outside lawyers who trust us to protect their clients and fee income.
Our collective experience in costs law and litigation enables us, at a very early stage, to give clients a realistic assessment of the prospects of their case. The value of being realistic with clients is demonstrated by the number of repeat instructions we receive. We aim for long-term term relationships with the external law firms that instruct us, which means establishing and maintaining trust from day one.
At a technical level, we have expertise in a wide range of fields, and have in the last year been instructed in costs matters relating to everything from landlord and tenant disputes to personal injury, and from trades union law to professional negligence.
Led by Michael Fletcher, a Partner, Chartered Legal Executive Advocate and Costs Lawyer with more than 25 years’ experience, the Glaisyers Costs team is a force to be reckoned with on the national stage. We are regularly opposed by national and London firms – and we regularly win.
