Law Cost Draftsman


The term Law Costs Draftsman (LCD) refers to a specialist who settles the legal costs of a court case. The task centres on a procedure known as the ‘detailed assessment’ of costs, which is controlled by statute in England and Wales. In saying this they don’t know litigation nor how to apply the law in legal cases like timeshare.

A good LCD will be a member of a professional body like the Association of Cost Lawyers (ACL), which regulates and provides training and accreditation for Law Costs Draftsmen and Costs Lawyers in the UK. If they claim to be an LCD you can check them and their credentials out.
