Our experience in high-value complex disputes means that we always have the right skills needed for the job.

We have developed our own versions of the court forms used in the costs dispute resolution process. This is important because of the size and scale of the work we take on.

Our advanced use of Excel allows us to produce a range of reports, summaries, and analysis both of our own work and the work of our opponents.


As an established team, our default method is collaborative rather than working as a collection of individuals.  Strong continuity within the firm has enabled us to minimise friction on internal co-ordination while maintaining consistency.

We have developed strong working relations with specialist costs counsel when the need arises, as it mostly does in high-value cases.


Practico has the capability and experience to guide clients through the costs process and help them navigate the best route forward at each stage of the dispute. Our set-up enables us to move swiftly on time-sensitive instructions, so that our clients benefit from our advice at an early stage in the matter. 


With our litigators’ instincts and experienced team of qualified costs lawyers, we get to the heart of the issues quickly.

Clients value the clarity of advice they get from working with Practico, which means they can quickly see the wood for the trees. We condense large and complex amounts of costs data into manageable and digestible summaries. Our clients tell us they value the reassurance this gives them.
