Costs

Negotating legal costs and cost agreements is an important part of legal practice, and one which can be hard for many both new and established practitioners to navigate. If you're looking for information on managing your legal costs and on how to create a costs agreement, including a conditional costs agreement, our CPD courses may help to clear up any questions. For example, can a lawyer charge for drafting a costs agreement? Or, are costs agreements in the legal profession covered by an Act? Earn your CPD points and brush up on your Costs knowledge with Leo Cussen's CPD courses.

    The payment of fees starts with communicating the retainer and costs agreement through to Disclosure Information and negotiating client concerns or complaints. There are red flags that should warn a practitioner at an early stage about client intentions and ability to pay. Missing these warnings signs or failing to communicate effectively can leave you exposed to a client dispute over fees and at worst, a formal complaint.
