Fiona, a Costs Lawyer, began her career in legal costs in 1999. Fiona has experience in dealing with a variety of case types and capable of dealing with the entire costs process, including advocacy. Fiona often works in-house for clients to prepare costs budgets, cost estimates and schedules of costs. She believes in providing straightforward, practical costs advice – while doing her utmost to ensure an excellent result for the paying or receiving party.
As well as training colleagues to provide a consistent high quality costs service, Fiona presents seminars to clients on topics such as: maximising costs, good file practice for costs recovery, costs CPR and key legal developments. She is a specialist in dealing with high-value and complex claims. Fiona takes a commercial view when advising clients, but is happy to progress to a detailed assessment. She is confident that the detailed bills of costs she prepares will find favour with the courts when subject to the assessment process.
An example of Fiona's work includes her preparing a significant bill of costs for an unusual and very complex multi-million pound claim. The claimant was an unborn child who was involved in a RTA that resulted in him being born prematurely and sustaining a serious brain injury.
