Our Services

Offering a range of services, we have experience of managing a wide portfolio of cost law cases, be them large or small. Combining our knowledge with a dedicated, personable, efficient and thorough approach, we take pride in securing the best financial results for our clients.


Court of Protection (COP)

We have experience in providing a full professional Court of Protection costs service tailored to balance the needs of solicitors and patients. It is recommended that a Bill of Costs is submitted by a Professional Deputy on an annual basis, along with an estimate of future costs for the subsequent year ahead.

We routinely draft and submit Bills for any court proceedings. Whether you are an Appointed Deputy or any other participant, we will help you work through the process of recovery of costs. That may be the preparation of a Short Format or full Bill of Costs for Detailed Assessment.

In summary our COP services include:

  • Detailed Assessment of Costs
  • Preparation of Short form Bills
  • Application for Legal Aid for Court of Protection Fees
  • Trustee Act 1925 Application Costs
  • Preparing Deputyship Bills for Assessment
  • Recovering Annual Management Fees
