Kelly Matthews


  • My experience includes areas such as complex catastrophic injury costs, commercial costs, fixed costs, costs budgets, Technology & Construction Court and Part 36.
  • I have a large amount of experience in all aspects of cost budgeting, including drafting and defending budgets in excess of £4million. I have conducted numerous costs and case management hearings across the country.
  • I specialise in dealing with costs in complex and high-value catastrophic injury cases which involved dealing with multi-million pound bills, and have attended over 100 detailed assessment hearings.
  • Since 2000 I have been working exclusively in costs and as a result have a vast experience with conditional fee agreements/ATE policies and the law in relation to both claimants and defendants.
  • I regularly provide training on fixed costs, multi-track costs and Part 36 to a wide range of insurers.
  • I lead the costs team in Southampton. The team provides advice on the full range of costs to clients and lawyers.


  • In 2011 I qualified as a Fellow of the Association of Law Costs Draftsmen in 2011.
