Ever since I first published an article on the “new” Arbitration Act 1996, in the Construction Law Journal  Volume 13 Number 6, nearly twenty years ago, I have maintained an interest in the practice of alternative dispute resolution, particularly arbitration.
I have a niche practice advising on recoverable and irrecoverable elements of costs incurred in the pursuit of arbitral proceedings.
I can draft written submissions on behalf of either the winning or the losing side, seeking to maximise or minimise the recovery of costs, either on my own or in conjunction with teams of arbitral counsel or costs lawyers as the case may be.
I can advise on claims for interest, which can go some way to defraying the cost of litigation funding, which can only increase as a source of capital for parties engaged in large scale commercial disputes, with or without an international flavour.
I can appear either at the arbitration or if the quantification of costs is transferred to the SCCO for assessment, will be happy to appear in London at any detailed assessment hearing.
I maintain my fees at the usual rate I charge for costs work in this area.
