  5. Expert Reports & Evidence

We can provide expert reports and appear as an expert witness in court providing unbiased opinions on the law of costs.



When it comes to litigation there is a risk that if the Defendant is successful in defending a claim, the Plaintiff will not pay their awarded costs. An order for Security for Costs can provide for funds to be available to insure against this risk.

We at National Costing Lawyers can assist the Defendant by preparing an expert estimate of recoverable costs for submission to the court in support of a Notice of Motion seeking an order for Security for Costs.

We can also prepare expert evidence in opposition to a Security for Costs application


To avoid a costly and lengthy costs assessment, our expert costs lawyers can prepare and submit a Notice of Motion seeking a Gross Sum Costs Order and determine the amount to allow when fixing the costs. Alternatively, if opposing such an order we can prepare expert reports to support your objection.
