Costs & Litigation Funding
The new litigation funding landscape post Jackson requires a new approach to costs and litigation funding. More emphasis will be placed on planning, less on arguing about costs after the event Thirty Nine Essex Street is ideally placed to help practitioners, insurers, funders and litigants to cope with these changes with its outstanding costs and litigation funding team which enjoys a formidable reputation at every level of seniority with high rankings in both Chambers & Partners and Legal 500.
Jackson likened litigation to a commercial project. From the start of that project team members can assist with setting up the appropriate funding vehicles bringing to bear the team’s considerable expertise in advising on potential funding arrangements and in drafting costs documentation, including CFAs, DBAs, CCFAs and legal expenses insurance policies.
Members appear in every court and tribunal where costs issues arise. Our barristers have considerable experience in appellate work, with frequent appearances in Court of Appeal and High Court appeals We also conduct all manner of detailed assessments, involving arguments arising from high value commercial litigation and technical challenges to costs recovery, as well as more everyday disputes.
A particular feature of Thirty Nine Essex Street's costs and litigation funding team is that many are also well known for their work elsewhere, in areas of law ranging from commercial and insurance litigation to judicial review, solicitors’ regulation, personal injury and clinical negligence, to construction and arbitration. This enables us to offer a rounded and multi-disciplinary approach.
