Legal Aid Costs Draftsman
Our team of experts provide bespoke legal aid costs draftsman services where matters are funded under legal help and legal aid.
A legal aid costs draftsman can recover legal costs from the Legal Aid Agency, but if the claim is successful and an inter-partes costs order is made, a legal aid costs draftsman can also recover legal costs from the unsuccessful party. A specialist legal aid costs draftsman will be able to prepare a six-column bill of costs (as opposed to a three-column bill) and ensure that the appropriate costs are claimed from both the LAA and the unsuccessful party.
