Costs & Litigation Funding

Costs & Litigation Funding

We have particular expertise in dealing with issues of costs, including the assessment of costs following successful litigation, solicitor and client costs disputes, and litigation funding.

Cormac Cawley acted for the professional funder in the Commercial Court and in the landmark Court of Appeal case of Arkin –v- Borchard (2005) 3 All ER 613. That was a decision under section 51 of the Senior Courts Act 1981 which introduced the “Arkin Cap” and established the economic model for the current third party litigation funding industry. He also acted with success for the funder in the refusal by the House of Lords of permission to the defendants to appeal the case further. The Arkin case also involved what is understood to be the first application to the Commercial Court for security for costs against a funder pursuant to CPR Part 25.14(2)(b).

Cormac also acted for the Defendant in the recent case of Rosenblatt -v- Man Oil Group [2016] 4 Costs LO 539. This was a decision of Mrs Justice Elizabeth Laing (on appeal from Senior Costs Judge Master Leonard) on the principles to be applied in permitting a solicitors’ retainer to be varied to allow them to charge hourly rates in excess of the fixed fee which had been originally agreed.

Examples of other cases on which we have acted recently:-

  • Advising Solicitors on the terms of a Conditional Fee Agreement in the British Virgin Islands.
  • Section 51 claim for costs against the Director of an unsuccessful claimant company.
  • Drafting a model funding agreement for a third-party funder of litigation following the Arkin case.
  • Challenging Success Fee claimed by Trustees in Bankruptcy where no Notice of Funding had been served on a respondent litigant in person to a claim to reverse an undervalue transaction under section 342 of the Insolvency Act 1986.
  • Acting for a client in seeking an order pursuant to section 68 of the Solicitors Act 1974 requiring their former solicitors to deliver a final statute bill so that the client could seek a solicitor and client assessment of all of the costs charged to them.

Great Service at competitive rates. Mishba Ali was very helpful and prompt all through my dealings with her.All queries were dealt in timely manner and i would recommend her for the professional service provided and thank her for getting my paper work completed in time
We used Sethi Partnership for conveyancing and I would highly recommend Caroline Hornett-White. Caroline is very professional, efficient kept us updated and advised us where we needed through out the process. I have already recommended Caroline and Sethi partnership to my friend who will be looking at conveyancing in the future.
Anna Randall from Sethi Partnership supported in the sale of our house and purchase of our new home. It was clearly a very busy time with the rush to complete before the original stamp duty holiday deadline at the end of March, and can say that Anna was always professional balancing the communication between email and phone, and spending the time to provide advice when required.I have already recommended Anna at The Sethi Partnership Solicitors to family looking to purchase property.
I used the Sethi Partnership for the conveyancing of the sale of my house in Hatch End and was very impressed with the efficient and effective service provided. The firm carried out the sale with little fuss and with minimal input from me. They were also responsive when I had questions. Their fees were in line with their original quote and were reasonable. I have no hesitation in recommending their services.
Anna (in conveyancing) was brilliant and kept me in the loop throughout. She is very experienced and leveraged her knowledge from past cases appropriately, as well as being meticulous in her work. Thank you for all the hard work!
I was assisted by Anna Randall with my flat purchase. It was always very easy to get in contact with her by email and telephone and I received regular updates throughout the transaction. Anna's advice helped me make difficult key decisions regarding my purchase which put me in a much better position as a purchaser.
I'd highly recommend The Sethi Partnership Solicitors and in particular Anna Randall.Anna is extremely professional and most importantly responsive, we had daily call's/emails with updates regarding our sale & purchase.We cant thank you enough.
We instructed Sethi to look after the sale of our house and purchase of a different one. We were very happy with the outcome and welcomed the candid and professional advice offered about various difficulties that arose in the purchase.What stops us from giving 5 stars is that we would have preferred to have had regular updates, even if just to say that nothing had happened, and that some of the documentation we received was hard for us to follow as it was in the form of template drafts that had not been appropriately adapted for our circumstances.However, we would unreservedly recommend the company, and in particular Anna Randall, who took very good care of us throughout.
Anna Randall dealt with my house sale. Very professional and competent, would recommend her to anyone, and use her again in the future. Great service.
Anna Randall you are a star again.... extremely efficient with extensive knowledge, helped our long-winded house purchase/sale proceed to fruition despite all the pitfalls thrown at you by our buyers. Highly recommended and details already passed onto friends who are currently buying property..
We recently sold our beloved house in London right in the middle of the COVID lockdown and restrictions. Anna and team carried out a seamless job with the conveyancing from start to completion. They were responsive and pro-active at all times which was even more important when we were abroad at times. We look forward to working with you again. Thank you!
We were very happy with the way Sethi Partnership helped with the purchase of our new property.Anna was very professional and thorough in her approach which gave us extra piece of mind and security as we knew they had our best interests at heart. Would highly recommend the firm to anyone and will be sure to use them again in the future.
Anna was instrumental in making our house sale and purchase a success! She always seemed to have our best interests at heart and gave sound and timely advice with regards to some very complex matters. Excellent service and we will definitely be using The Sethi Partnership Solicitors again. Highly recommend!
I was pleased with and grateful for Caroline's work on my sale and purchase. Very responsive and provided a professional and efficient service. While other parts of the chain were being slow, Caroline was the sane voice at the end of the phone. Thanks!
We were very happy with the Probate services Malcolm Turner provided us with. He explained everything in the right level of detail and was extremely polite and understanding. The advice he gave us, and the action he took on our behalf lead to a successful conclusion of these matters. I have since recommended Malcom Turner & Sethi Partnership to friend who is now going through Probate with his Mother's estate.
