Under Section 6 of the Costs Practice Direction solicitors have to give costs estimates to clients and the other side at various times as the case progresses. Get the estimates wrong and you could seriously damage your chances of recovering your full costs when you win.
Estimates are required at the outset, allocation, with your pre-trial checklist and at any stage in the case where matters have changed the position of the previous estimate.
At CIQ we offer a quick turnaround costs estimate service, producing estimates for CMCs, allocation questionnaires and pre-trial check lists with a 48 hour turnaround time. To do this we are open 8.30 a.m. – 5.30 p.m. Monday to Friday and you will always be able to speak direct with a Costs Draftsman. We will collect the file and return it to you and ensure that you maximise your recovery potential.
