How long have you been working in costs?


When did you join PIC?


What work do you do?

I head up our Newcastle office, providing direction for the office and acting as a point of contact for clients. I run my own caseload and am involved in all elements of the costs process. I regularly prepare high value bills of costs and costs budgets. As an advocate I am often found in Court and regularly provide representation at CCMCs.

Some interesting cases

  • £1,000,000.00 serious injury RTA case involving life changing injuries.
  • High value Professional Negligence claim case spanning 8 years.
  • Acted as advocate in number of high value clinical negligence claims.

Additional personal details:

I am an avid runner and regularly take part in marathons and half marathons. I recently completed the LPC and will be qualifying as a solicitor in 2019.



“Seamus has an unparalleled eye for detail. He uses his skill as an advocate to pre-empt and tackle potential issues when drafting Bills of Costs and Costs Budgets, making it much easier to justify the costs claimed and maximise recovery. Advice is always clear and commercially focussed – I would recommend him to anybody.”
