Posted on: July 6th, 2021 by Elena Kostova

A Costs Draftsman is a specialist practitioner who deals with litigation in respect of legal costs, usually, within a process known as Detailed Assessment (pursuant to CPR 47).

A Costs Draftsman can represent either the receiving or the paying party in costs proceedings and can deal with either inter parties or solicitor client costs assessments.

At Sentio Costs we are a specialist full service costs draftsman practice offering both bespoke ad hoc costs draftsman services and a tailored consultancy costs draftsman service.
