Costs in Regional Bar
Guildhall Chambers has a number of barristers with expertise in costs and litigation funding. With a growing reputation in this field, the set includes some of the most prominent regional specialists. Described by one client as 'a walking knowledge bank of costs rules and laws', Oliver Moore receives nationwide instructions, heading the specialist costs practice while also being head of the Chambers’ Costs and Litigation Funding team. 'Future star of the costs bar' James Wibberley has a background in commercial litigation and has a broad costs practice comprising a combination of advisory and advocacy work.
St John's Chambers has a well-established costs team in the region, with leading personal injury barristers advising on costs and funding issues. Described as the 'go-to' for costs in the South West region by one client, Darren Lewis is a key member of the set, along with the 'reliable' James Marwick. In AS v Wirral NHS Trust, Marwick recently successfully acted for the claimant on appeal in overturning a decision to disallow any success fee.
