Legal Costs Negotiators: Costs Draftsmen and Costs Lawyers
What are Legal Costs Negotiators?
Legal costs are an inevitable outcome of any type of legal proceedings. On conclusion of a case, one or both parties will be liable for all or some of the legal costs accumulated throughout the litigation process. In a large proportion of cases, the losing party will be held responsible for payment of the winning party’s costs. It is often difficult for parties to agree on the level of costs payable by the losing party (paying party) to the winning party (receiving party). If costs cannot be agreed on a case, Legal Practice Support’s experienced legal costs negotiators can assist in the negotiation and recovery of legal costs, whether you are the paying or receiving party.
