Hands up if you are already fed up with talk of the dreaded coronavirus. It almost makes you nostalgic for Brexit – well maybe not!

But joking apart, this is a time when many solicitors firms are rightly concerned about the next few months. How will they cope with sickness, self-isolation, sending staff home to work remotely, paying wages and rent? The Chancellor has announced a package of support for businesses, but the emphasis is on loans.

The most important thing to do is to bring in as much cash as possible.

This is easier said than done but we are here to help.

We can help you to identify any long running cases where it might be possible to obtain an interim costs order. Even before the current difficulties the court acknowledged the importance of these orders –


In the case of RXK v Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust [2019] EWHC 2751 Irwin LJ said it was –

“entirely proper… to order interim costs payments with a view to the cash flow of solicitors in very long-lasting litigation where very significant liability has been conceded”.

Everyone in our team can work remotely. This means that we can turn work around quickly whether it is a bill, costs estimate or budget.
