I am an Associate and the Manchester Costs Management Team Leader. The team was set up by Steven Green in 2010, when I joined Irwin Mitchell. I qualified as a Costs Lawyer in 2007 and have been involved in legal costs for over 25 years.
I have been a member of the Association of Costs Lawyers (ACL) council and worked with training and professional development particularly. I am now a non-executive non-lay member of the Costs Lawyers Standards Board (CLSB) the Costs Lawyers Regulatory Body and as such am involved in advising the lay board as to the issues impacting costs lawyers and ensuring that consumers of costs lawyers services are protected and provided a service which is fit for purpose.
Within the Manchester costs team we work closely with the fee earners in our office and with the wider Costs Management Team to provide the firm with bespoke costs services to support their work and the business.
