Ben’s legal career commenced in the complex area of legal costs. His early experience with legal costs were as a Law Costs Draftsman in specialised costs firm whereby he acted on behalf of multiple Claimant solicitor clients prior to the introduction of the LASPO reforms in 2013. In this role, Ben obtained significant experience in the drafting of bills of costs, points of dispute and replies and developed negotiating skills with clients and opponents.

Thereafter, Ben moved in house and trained and qualified as a Solicitor Advocate in 2017, alongside his role as Head of Costs, in a large industrial disease firm of Solicitors. In this role, Ben managed a team of Costs Draftsmen and Administrators whilst handling his own case load, undertaking hearings and reporting to key stakeholders. Furthermore, he handled preliminary issue trials and JSMs convened solely in respect of recovery of legal costs following the settlement of a large group action.

Ben is experienced in dealing with wasted cost applications against legal representatives. He has experience of representing applicants and respondents to such application. He is confident in his understanding of the legal framework which governs wasted costs and can provide robust advice to the legal representative from contemplation of the application through to its conclusion.
