Solicitor and Advocate
Yorkshire and Humberside
0114 321 6369
John qualified as a Solicitor in 1983 and over time developed an increasing interest in costs law. In 2001 decided to focus his practice solely on costs, a move which has kept him incredibly busy ever since.
John’s wide and varied experience has seen him represent both Claimants and Defendants, working both in-house and for specialist cost consultancies. John’s practice is predominantly based in the North of England but he also accepts instructions to appear in the SCCO and before Regional Costs Judges nationwide in high value or complex cases.
John accepts instructions to act on detailed assessments, oral reviews of provisional assessment, application hearings and CCMCs. John is an expert in costs budget management and his background as a private practice Solicitor often proves invaluable when addressing Judges in the context of case management and costs.
John takes particular enjoyment from dealing with technical challenges and can provide Costs Advices on technical points which will often inform opinion as to whether a case is settled or advanced to a hearing.
