This is an important decision concerning the recoverability of costs incurred during an inquest in later civil proceedings. It affects clinical negligence, personal injury and HRA practitioners alike. TMC were instructed by Hodge Jones & Allen in the case of Roach and attended before Master Hurst on the assessment of costs. Andrew Post of Hailsham Chambers represented them on the Claimants' successful appeal to the High Court.

"Just a quick note to thank T M Costings for a fantastic job in drafting the objections and representing me at the detailed assessment. I was very impressed with the professionalism and attention to detail that T M Costings put into our case in challenging the legal bill, which I feel was the key to our success. I would have no problem recommending T M Costings to any of our clients and look forward to working them again soon."Justin Levene - Borehamwood
