A practical guide setting out the main issues and challenges that arise when clients challenge their solicitor’s bill. Covering the rules, statutes, case law etc but also providing guidance as to terms of retainers as well as the process of assessing charges.

This area of law is complex and is still not well known by many solicitors or even judges. Also, following LASPO and probable fixed costs extensions, clients are now far more likely to have to pay their own costs. This book is written in a clear manner so that anyone from clients and trainees to partners and judges can benefit from it.


Robin is a specialist costs and litigation funding counsel at Clerksroom. He has focused on this complex area of law since qualification and has over 15 years’ experience of dealing with all types of costs claims.

He also acts in professional negligence claims involving solicitors, particularly where the dispute involves issues relating to costs.
