Costs in Regional Bar

Chambers of Bill Braithwaite QC

Exchange Chambers is home to costs specialist Richard Wilcock, who is particularly notable for his work on behalf of the NHS in costs matters. One notable recent case is Nicolaou v Cass, in which Wilcock represented the paying party in a challenge to a two-stage after-the-event insurance premium.

Kings Chambers

Far and away the largest team of costs specialists in the region, Kings Chambers is instructed for all sides in costs matters, as well as acting as mediators, often in clinical negligence costs cases. Paul Hughes recently represented a petitioner in opposing a respondent's application to drastically increase its costs budget before a five-day High Court trial, in which the necessity of, and reasoning behind, such a change was heavily disputed.
