We specialise in all aspects of Civil costs in England and Wales. It takes a lot of time to keep abreast of the many developments in this field so we regret that we are unable to draw any Criminal bills or those with a Public Funding component.

We act for both paying and receiving parties. For more details of our services to each please use the Claimant and Defendant tabs at the top of the page.

We have been in practice as costs specialists since 1990.

We are based on the edge of the New Forest and are happy to accept instructions from any firm of solicitors anywhere in England and Wales. We have appeared as advocates from Newcastle to Truro and will appear wherever attendance can be justified.

Given the advent of the Family Fee Schemes from October 2010 we regret that we are unable to accept any Public Funded Family instructions.

We generally receive and deliver files by Document Exchange but will also accept instructions by Royal Mail and courier service at your election.

The principal of ICF Law is Ian Foster (MA Oxford) and he will undertake your work on your behalf unless we agree otherwise.
