Legal costs recovery for local government

Having to find the money to defend (or make) a legal claim puts unwelcome demand on over-stretched Council budgets. Councils are accountable to the Audit Office who justify all local authority expenditure.

Helping Councils to recover legal costs

Neil Clifford & Co. is a legal costs recovery practice, helping Councils manage and recover legal costs for claims relating to:

  • Housing disrepair
  • Compulsory purchase orders
  • Planning issues
  • Defending loss of business claims
  • Defending personal injury claims
  • Judicial reviews and more.

Neil will clarify your situation and manage the legal costs on your behalf throughout the case including:

  • Calculating an accurate budget
  • Challenging opponents’ costs (including fast track and small claims)
  • Keeping council employees’ costs under control.

The service also includes:

  • Negotiating with the other side to keep costs down if the Council is liable to pay an Adverse Costs Order
  • If unsuccessful, supporting you in the process that follows (provisional or detailed assessment)
  • Recovering the costs you’re awarded – including enforcing the other side to pay if necessary.

When you ask Neil Clifford & Co. to support you as a claimant or defendant, you can be sure all legal costs will be controlled and managed to best effect.
