Costs & Litigation Funding
Thirty Nine Essex Street has an outstanding Costs Law team which enjoys a formidable reputation at every level of seniority and is top ranked by both Chambers UK and Legal 500. The team undertakes all aspects of costs work; they often act and advise in costs disputes arising out of judicial review and other public law proceedings. Our barristers have considerable experience in appellate work, with frequent appearances in Court of Appeal and High Court appeals, as well as the Supreme Court and the Privy Council. Members are almost invariably to be found in the most important costs cases. We also conduct all manner of detailed assessments, involving technical challenges to costs recovery, as well as more everyday disputes.
Chambers has a wealth of experience in advisory and drafting work. The team has considerable expertise in advising on potential funding arrangements and in drafting costs documentation, including CFAs, CCFAs and legal expenses insurance policies.
A particular feature of Thirty Nine Essex Street's Costs Law team is that, whilst all its members are specialists in the principles of costs, many are also well known for their work in other fields, including public and administrative law. This enables us to offer a rounded and multi-disciplinary approach.
