PIC have a dedicated team of skilled advocates who have experience in conducting detailed assessments in county courts throughout England and Wales as well as the Supreme court costs office. They will ensure that all cases are carefully risk assessed so that the decision to proceed to detailed assessment is a considered one. You will be provided with full advice as to the matters in issue.
If we are negotiating on your bill then the detailed assessment department will work closely with our negotiations department to ensure all matters are considered as offers are received.
We are also happy to accept instructions to prepare points of dispute or replies, willing to provide written advice on offers and to conduct joint meetings, where you have been ordered by the court to narrow the issues.
Once the decision to proceed is taken then we will ensure that a strong line is taken and that there is a willingness to fight all the way to the hearing, unless substantially improved offers are made.
We are happy to accept instructions on an Agency Basis from other costs consultants or from solicitors for whom we have not prepared the bill or points of dispute.
