ARC Costs are a full service legal costs firm assisting in all aspects of law, including family law cases. We are highly experienced Costs Draftsmen/Costs Lawyers and have been successful in recovering substantial amounts in legal fees for our clients. We can assist in the whole of the detailed assessment process, from drafting your Bill of Costs and Points of Reply to conducting negotiations with the other side before advising on whether the claim should proceed to a Detailed Assessment Hearing, for which one of our in-house Costs Lawyers can provide representation. Similarly for paying parties, we are well versed in preparing Points of Dispute and contesting legal costs claims, and on average we reduce any Bill of Costs on which we are instructed to oppose, by 40%.

Our team also assist in publicly funded and inter-partes costs claims for family law cases, with our client base ranging from law firms to Litigants in Person.

In inter-partes disputes, we can also assist either paying parties and receiving parties.

Using our expert costing service, we help clients maximise their recovered legal costs whilst providing expert legal advice and minimising the risk of rejected claims from the Legal Aid Agency, to ensure you maintain your KPIs.

We regularly use the CCMS system to submit legal aid costs claims and deal with all the administration on behalf of our clients and to free up the time of fee earners, thereby ensuring you can recover your maximum legal aid fees in an expeditious and efficient manner. 

I have worked with Robert and his team on more than one occasion, and each time they have provided me with an extremely professional, timely and effective service which has proven beneficial. They are very efficient in their service delivery as well as being approachable and user-friendly. My first choice for any costs issue.
