After graduating from the University of Liverpool in 2010 with a degree in Modern History, Richie went on to complete the Graduate Diploma in Law in 2011 and the Bar Professional Training Course in 2012 at the University of Law. We then welcomed him to Paragon Costs in 2013. Richie is well known for preparing Costs Budgets, for which he boasts having prepared the most within Paragon.
Richie is one of our Costs Lawyer Advocates, having tailored his development at Paragon Costs towards providing a full service to clients that includes costs advocacy. Within weeks of qualifying in August 2017 Richie had already represented the receiving party in two high value clinical negligence costs management conferences and opposed an interim costs certificate application in respect of a £1.5million bill of costs.
In his time at Paragon Costs Richie has developed a deep and well-rounded understanding of cost law. He has prepared bills of costs and costs budgets exceeding £1million in value; represented both the receiving and paying party through the costs management and detailed assessment processes; drafted successful applications for relief from sanctions and solicitor-client costs assessments; and advised several litigants in person. These varied experiences have enabled Richie to analyse, research and advise on the most complex and novel costs queries received from clients.
Richie combines his legal knowledge with a commercial approach to providing advice in order to suit the specific needs of each client. In addition to his fee earning work, Richie often provides training on emerging costs law issues for clients and colleagues.
